Payen gasket box

 Nice box for a lowly gasket set. Etienne Payen founded Payen Gaskets in 1906 and opened a British office the next year. The French firm developed and manufactured asbestos and copper gaskets and by the First World War had became a leader in the supply of cylinder head gaskets. The company continued to expand with the motoring industry and today is part of the Federal Mogul conglomerate- though I expect this set for a Velocette MSS is no longer available.
