Vintage FFV Lemon Thins Cookie Tin Southern Biscuit VA
- Source: eBay
Up for auction is this vintage Lemon Thins tin by FFV (Fine Foods of Virginia) Southern Biscuit Co., in Richmond, Virginia . I'm not sure how old it is but I would guess it is from the 1950's. The quotation on the side of the can reads " America's Most Distinctive Cookies For Those Who Prefer the Finest ". The tin measures approx. 4-1/2" H x 6" across - both measurements with cover on. Cover fits very snug and the inside is clean with no rust. There are a few dings and dents but nothing too detrimental if you wanted to display it. Color is a much brighter yellow than my pictures suggest. Cellophane tape is still attached around the rim in some places. There are a couple of scratches here and there and one near the quotation most notably. Bottom of the can has a black stamped number and you can see from my picture there are a few smudges of some sort - the inside has the same smudging or discoloration. I believe with the right cleaner you could have this tin sparkling.Thanks for looking and !
