Brand Etsy

This product is unavailable

This is a vintage cookie tin or, as the British call them, biscuit barrel, featuring a litho on the exterior portraying the four seasons through scenes of animals in their habitat. There are bunnies representing spring, a butterfly and poppy representing summer, a squirrel representing autumn and a snowman representing winter - a different bird appears in each scene. The lid is perforated and contains a substance that absorb moisture (see photo). The tin is roundl and measures 7 in diameter and has a height of 6 3/8. It is in very good condition with a touch of paint loss on the edge of the lid, really nothing. Difficult to date precisely, but from the style of decoration, I would think that it dates to the 1960s. This is a very nice tin - great addition to a collection or just as a display piece!
