Here is a lovely french tin used to store cotton. Tins like these were a part of a french nurse's medical kit before everything became plastic wrapped. The tin is plated metal, perhaps chromed, and the inside was painted a cream colour. There are aeration holes on the lid. This tin is in good vintage condition despite a lot of surface wear, both of the metal and the inside paint. Both show scratches and flaking, though no rust and only two tiny dents. A lovely aged find with history.

5 1/4 inches long, 2 3/4 inches wide and 1 3/4 inches high (13 cm by 7 cm by 4,5 cm)

Please refer to my shop policies for combined shipping information. Merci!
