This is an awesome antique typewriter ribbon storage tin from an era gone by.
Manifold Supplies was one of the major players in the ribbon business and the Panama Brand was one of it's top sellers.
The lid, which is a screw on type, features a drawing of a Clipper type of airplane flying over the isthmus of Panama. It has minor scratched areas on the lid as would be expected. The sides have the unique advertising slogans: "Call Your Local Panama-Beaver Man--- always a live wire". The bottom shows that it is a product of the Manifold Supplies Co. of Brooklyn N.Y. and the type of ribbon that it had contained.
The bottom of the inside has drawings of items that the used tin could be used to store...paper clips, pins, tacks, hairpins, etc. An early form of recycling.
The underside of the lid features the advertising slogan: "Since 1896 The Line that can't be matched".
Great piece of retro decor!
Also awesome addition to the serious ribbon tin collection.
Measures: 2 1/2" diameter X 3/4" depth (6cm X 2cm).
