UP FOR AUCTION IS A WONDERFUL
OLD VINTAGE TIN
from Pennsylvania Dutch country!
"VICTOR BRAND" "STURGIS PRETZEL CO., READING, PA- BAKERS OF HANDMADE PRETZELS SINCE 1861"
This is a fabulous and large tin that is in excellent condition for its age.
I would approximately guess this to be from the early '50s.
The tin is a rich mustard/maize color with the advertising info
banding the bottom of the base on a red strip.
The top is a classic double-distelfink pattern with stylized tulips and hearts in a very traditional Pa Dutch design.
The wonderful art on the top is in red and black on the mustard background.
The scenes on the sides are of 3 Amish plain folk
and 3 horse-drawn carriages with drivers.
The tin measures: 6" tall 10" diameter
It would make a fantastic addition to any country kitchen or a great piece to store anything in! The condition, considering its age, is great- a couple of tiny dings on the lid, and minor scattered scratches and scuffing- none of which distracts from the uniqueness and quality of this nice old tin!
If you don't buy it- I am going to keep it ...
the color is just wonderful, and the capacity for storage is irresistible!
Thanks for looking!
