Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
I would date this to the 1920s or 1930s. It had some very old sewing notions inside and had seen much use as a sewing basket. I do not know what would have originally been inside.
Perhaps it had always been intended to be used for that purpose.
This has a delightful decorative exterior in what I would call dancing nymphs in a Mid summer Night's Dream sort of way...silhouettes were very popular in the 1920's and 1930's I've never seen another one like this!
It has some paint loss here and there as you would expect from a tin of this age and some wear/rust in the interior as well (see last photo)
The bottom of the tin is still very clean and solid and to my eye the exterior color and graphics are still very nice.
About 8 3/4" long about 6" wide and 3 1/2" deep
