Description

NIFTY TIN

Have you heard of Royal Crown Sour Fruit Rolls?

This colorful vintage tin with hummingbirds and flowers, a handle and a finial on the lid once held the confection, courtesy of Murray Allen Imports (1941-1983). Made in England, Sour Fruit Rolls are a hard candy said to be a cross between Life Savers and Jolly Ranchers. Murray Allen no longer exists, but you can get the candy today from the Vermont Country Store.

It's a lovely tin with just the right amount of patina for those of us who go for that sort of thing.

Good condition considering its age: a rust spot on the bottom and places where the paint is worn. On the bottom, it reads "Murray-Allen, Regal Crown, Imported Superior Quality, Exclusive Confections, A Murray-Allen Import, New York, N.Y., Los Angeles, Calif."

Measures approximately 5.5" tall by 4" across.
