This interesting vintage Colman’s Mustard tin has a North African theme. The tin is decorated with scenes from Tunis and Algiers, and the turquoise blue color of the sky is positively Mediterranean. Scenes include a mosque and souk, and other such locales. The lid is hinged. I believe this tin dates to the 1930s or so, possibly earlier.

The tin has vintage wear and patina, which includes some small areas of wear, some scratches and scuffs, handling marks and soiling, some small dents and dings, fading and discoloration, some rust, etc. The lid shows the most wear, and the edges are rather darkened with patina. SOME NOTICEABLE DENTING ON LID. Colors are still bright, but there are some larger scrapes and worn areas. Dark patina on metal rim, on inside and on bottom. There is rust on the inside and outside at the hinge area, at interior crevice, probably elsewhere on tin. Hinges are firmly attached, but move slightly stiffly. Open/close requires some coaxing.

Again, condition issues of note:

• Lid has most wear, and LID IS DENTED.
• Some larger scrapes and worn areas.
• Some rust at hinge areas, interior crevice, elsewhere.
• Open/close needs some coaxing.

Approximate size of tin is about 8.25” by 5 5/8” by about 5.5” tall.

The tin is empty.
