This fun retro candy tin dates to the 1950s and is decorated on the lid with spacemen or astronauts on a planet in outer space. The tin is very thin and flat and has a hinged lid. It once contained candy from Edward Sharp & Sons, and was made in England. Tins from this era with an outer space theme are very collectable and hard to find.

The tin has a good bit of vintage wear and patina. There are some small areas of wear, some scratches and scuffs, handling marks and soiling, some small dents and dings, etc. Some wear and spotting on lid. Some rust around metal rim, on bottom, and on the inside, including a couple good sized spots. Some dark patina on the inside as well. The hinges are firmly attached and lid moves freely, but open/close requires some coaxing.

Again, condition issues of note:
• Good bit of vintage wear and patina.
• Rust in several areas, including some larger spots.
• Some wear and spotting on lid.
• Open/close requires some coaxing.

Approximate size of tin is about 4.5” by 3 7/8” by about 7/8” thick.

The tin is empty.
