Distress and patina are always so pretty on gold, and, for me, this tin doesn't disappoint.

This large tin once held two pounds of chocolates to be presented on Mother’s Day – see the small oval platform on center of lid which says, “With Love to Mother.” It likely dates to the 1920s. Beautiful gold colors, lots of sumptuous scroll motifs, and plenty of wear and patina with large silvery areas showing through the gold. There are embossed details and a small latch at the front. Lid is hinged and is reinforced, as per the era.

The vintage wear and patina also includes some small areas of wear, some scratches and scuffs, handling marks and soiling, some small dents and dings, etc. Most silver patina and wear is on the lid and the front side. There would have been four attached feet on the bottom which are now missing. One hinge appears bent or tinkered with, but they work fine. Some scuffing, scratching, and small dents on inside and bottom, reasonably light for age of tin. Closure requires some coaxing.

Again, condition issues of note:

• Lots of wear and patina, with lots of silver showing on lid and front side of base.
• Feet missing from bottom.
• Closure requires some coaxing.

Approximate size of tin is about 9” by 5 5/8” by about 3 7/8” tall.

The tin is empty.
