This small vintage black biscuit tin and hinged box inexplicably features red cactus flowers and stylized gold rodeo riders. Maybe a southwestern souvenir? Very intriguing.....

The tin opens from the top and has a hinge. It is in very good shape besides a few scratches in the paint and one little rust spot inside. It is the graphic design style that gives the tin its wonderful vintage look.

The tin has a black background with painterly bright red exotic cactus flowers with warm green leaves. The metallic gold stylized drawings of tiny cowboys or cowgirls and riding horses in a desert or fenced landscape and are waving their hats, galloping or being bucked with a blazing sun above are a charming contrast to the more realistic flowers. Strangely wonderful!

The lid is easily opened and closed. I'm guessing it is from the 1940s, but could be older or newer. No indication of the maker, although the biscuit ingredients are stamped on the bottom. The tin was probably made in the United Kingdom or Canada from the spelling of "flavour."

It measures 4" by 2 1/2" and 4 3/4" high.

Would be great to actually keep things in---anything from keepsakes to sewing supplies to...biscuits (cookies). How amazing would this be displayed in your Cottage Chic or retro fabulous kitchen? Very!
