Tins & Tinware

Vintage English candy tin

This vintage 4-1/2" x 3-3/4" x 3/4" high candy tin is a deep wine red color with gold accents and trim. A beautiful cream colored butterfly with brown spots and a bluish body graces the lid. The interior is shiny silver metal. The bottom is stamped “Made in England by Edward Sharp & Sons Ltd. of Maidstone, Kent”. The exterior is in exceptional condition, with only very minor wear marks from the lid being opened and closed many times. The lid interior has a few tiny “pinprick” dents, a couple of which you can feel, but not see, when you rub your finger tips on the lid exterior. Whatever kind of candy this tin originally held, it has held a bunch of incense pieces for who knows how many years. They’re still there, so consider them a “freebie” when you buy this great old tin. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Thanks to a very nice gentleman by the name of Nick, we now know that this tin originally held English toffee. Nick’s email was so neat, we want to share it with you verbatim:

Hello from England! I noticed that you have an Edward Sharp candy (called sweets here in the
U.K.) tin. I remember them very well when I was at school in the 1950s. Specifically they made chewy toffees and everybody knew their advertising slogan – “Sharps the Word for Toffee”. They first recorded “Sharp’s Super-Kreem Toffee” as a registered trade-mark on February 21, 1922. Their famous logos (still registered and protected) were:
   1) A parrot on a floor-stand perch - “Speaks for Itself”
   2) A caricature of an upper-crust gent, complete with bowler-hat (derby), walking-stick, and monocle - “Sir Kreemy Knut”
You can still buy these toffees made by Trebor-Bassett – a huge conglomerate manufacturing all kinds of foodstuffs. BUT THEY DO NOT TASTE THE SAME!!!!!
Regards, Nick

Thanks so much, Nick, for taking the time to email us. We love hearing from our Trading Post visitors, and we’re giving you the long-distance award!

Daher floral tin bowl

This is one of the famous colorful Daher metal bowls copyrighted in 1971. This one’s interior has a large floral spray in the center surrounded by eight smaller floral sprays encircling the sculptured sides, all of these done in shades of red, pink, yellow, orange, blue, green, and brown, and banded by a purple and orange border. The bowl measures 10" in diameter at the top, 6-1/2" in diameter at the scalloped base, and stands 1-3/4" high. Exterior bottom carries the Daher logo with the “Daher Decorated Ware” script below in a scroll. Underneath that it says “© - 1971, The Tin Box Company, Designed by Daher, Long Island City, N.Y. 11101, Made in England, Regd. Des. 951942.” White exterior shows wear scuffing and discoloration, but the interior is in superb condition, with only a couple of flyspecks. See our companion bowl listed immediately below.

Daher European countryside tin bowl

This is another of the famous colorful Daher metal bowls copyrighted in 1971. This one’s interior has a lakeside scene with park pavilions, people having a picnic on the lawn, sailboats on the lake, mountains in the background, and a large table in the foreground loaded with fruit and flowers. Around this, eight floral sprays encircle the sculptured sides. All of this is done in a riot of reds, pinks, yellows, oranges, blues, greens, and browns, and banded by a red and gold border. The bowl measures 10" in diameter at the top, 6-1/2" in diameter at the scalloped base, and stands 1-3/4" high. Exterior bottom carries the Daher logo with the “Daher Decorated Ware” script below in a scroll. Underneath that it says “© - 1971, The Tin Box Company, Designed by Daher, Long Island - N.Y. 11101, Made in England, Regd. Des. 951942.” White exterior shows a little wear scuffing and discoloration, but the interior is in superb condition and the gold just glows! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Avon Christmas 1981 canister

What a pretty candy tin! Its bottom says it’s a “Canister made in England exclusively for Avon, Christmas 1981,” but the design is really for all seasons, being a  trellis intertwined with vines, flowers, and fruit, all done in shades of red, orange, green, brown, and cream, with plenty of shiny gold accents and gold gilding around the top. The unusual shape is composed of a flat back panel that wraps around to two concave side panels on each side, leading to a convex front panel. All six panels have a design, as does the lid. Canister stands 4-3/4" tall when lidded and measures 4" wide x 2-7/8" deep. Excellent vintage condition with no dings or dents, and the interior is still a shiny gold color. Some scuffing to the top gold rim where the tight-fitting lid has been taken on and off for years, and two small exterior rust marks, one on the back and one on the lid.

Vintage tin cup

Whoa! Ol’ Swaphos says this old tin cup looks like it could have accompanied Cookie’s chuckwagon on treks along the Santa Fe Trail! Can’t you just imagine the cowboys gathered around the campfire drinking their morning coffee out of cups such as this? But for me it conjures up wonderful memories of visiting my grandparents’ farm every summer as a young child. There was a really neat old water pump in the barn with a cup like this one hanging on a nail on the wall above. What fun for a little kid to pump like crazy with one hand while holding the tin cup in the other hand waiting to catch the water that finally came out of the pump spout. (Never mind that the iron taste of the well water left a lot to be desired!) Such was life 50 years ago on a Michigan dairy farm where we kids got to spend long summer days playing in the hayloft, riding on the tractor, picking corn for supper right off the stalk in the dusty cornfield across the even more dusty road, and helping Grandpa bring the cows home for evening milking -- which was done by hand, of course! All the cats would gather round eagerly meowing for the occasional squirt right in the mouth from sure-shot Grandpa! That’s a lot of memories from one old tin cup, but if you’re lucky, this one will do the same for you. It stands 2-1/2" tall x 3-5/8" in diameter, measures 4-1/2" across at its applied handle, and features a rolled top and a reverse rolled handle. Unmarked as to maker. We’re tickled to have 10 of these neat old cups, and price is for each. All are in surprisingly good condition considering their obvious age, with only a minor small dent here and there, but virtually no rust, so you could actually use every one of them should you choose. All of the exterior finishes are spotted and look quite primitive, making them perfect for display purposes. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Vintage Murray-Allen candy tin

This very attractive candy tin features a lovely tableau front and back of an 18th Century young couple seated outdoors in a clearing surrounded by summer wildflowers. Additional flower garlands surround each gold-framed tableau and wrap around the sides of the tin, all in beautiful muted shades of pink, orange, green, blue, cream, and brown. Tin is an elongated octagon that measures 6" x 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" tall, rising to 6" tall when lidded. Tin bottom carries the Regal Crown logo and is marked “Murray-Allen,” “Imported Superior Quality Exclusive confections,” “A Murray-Allen Import,” “New York, N.Y. - Los Angeles, Calif.” Tiny black printing at the bottom says “6 MB Made in England.” Very good condition with no dings or dents. A number of small scratches on the exterior attest to this tin’s vintage status, but they’re nearly invisible except In direct light. The interior is still a shiny gold with very little scratching. The tight-fitting lid has more visible scratching, particularly around its bottom edge where it has been taken off and on for decades. Still perfectly usable and a lovely display piece.

Pair of brass finished tin bowls

This is a pair of rather intriguing vintage tin bowls with a brass colored finish. They are coordinating bowls, not a matched pair, with various designs encircling their sides and a large circular bottom design that appears to be a human caricature. It’s those bottom designs that are intriguing, and I really can’t begin to describe them. Hopefully they’ll show up well in the photos. One bowl is 5" in diameter x 2-1/8" high and has a rounded bottom that allows it to rock without tipping over. The other bowl stands 1-7/8" high with diameters of 4-7/8" at the top and 2" at its base. Neither bowl is marked and both are in perfect condition with no dents or dings. They’re really quite attractive and I sure wish I knew what they are and what those designs are supposed to represent! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Jane Wooster Scott Autumn’s Palette puzzle tin

This beautiful 8" x 8" x 3" tin is one of the Jane Wooster Scott Keepsake Tin Series and contains her 1000-piece Autumn’s Palette puzzle. Born in Philadelphia in 1946, Jane Wooster Scott is a prolific artist, specializing in pastoral vistas and old buildings from a bygone American era. Her paintings are part of the permanent White House collection and also hang in museums, public buildings, and private homes throughout the world. Celebrity collectors include Aaron Spelling, Sylvester Stallone, and Marlon Brando. This Autum’s Palette puzzle in its Keepsake Tin was issued in 2005 and is no longer available, but our tin and puzzle pieces are in beautiful like-new condition. Note: This is NOT a child’s puzzle – the pieces are very small and could pose a choking hazard for young children. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
