The Walter Baker Company is iconic in many respects - it was the first and largest producer of quality chocolate in America for many years, and continues to this day.

The company origins date back to 1765 - it was formally established in 1780 and remained in family hands until 1896 when it was sold - subsequent changes of ownership followed with eventual acquisition by Kraft Foods in 1989.

This is a very early Walter Baker Cocoa tin and the paper label is in very nice condition on all four sides - the colours are good, with negligible discolouration and no significant tears or missing pieces - all the printing is clear and legible.

The top is embossed with the classic chocolate maiden figure (reference photo) - the image is based on a painting from the 17th century by a Swiss painter - the painting was registered in 1885 as the company trademark and became the classic hallmark on all labels and tins.

The tin is approximately 3 ins wide, 4.25 ins high and 2 ins in depth - there are no dents or bruises to the case.
