Collecting Vintage Tins
Tins make fun, inexpensive decor and help add a vintage feel to kitchens. They are also great for storage in the kitchen, on your desk or in your car.
A Few of My Favorite Collectible Advertising Tins:
Huntley & Palmers Black Lotus Tin
This is another amazing tin from my collection. It is a flat round tin with an embossed design of a dragon across a landscape of flowers in pink, gold, and blue on a black background. There is a pagoda and bridge in the background. The sides are plain black except for a small pink block with the word LOTUS reversed out in black on the lid. On the bottom side is a tiny mark reading Made in England in white.
The bottom is embossed HUNTLEY & PALMERS BISCUITS, READING, HUYTON (LIVERPOOL) & LONDON ENGLAND. From my research I have discovered another tin like this in the Reading Museum in England.

Asian Theme Cherry Blossom and Bird ‘Lacquered’ Tin
Beautiful vintage tin with a design inspired by fine, lacquered antiques. Blue bird flies above a flowering cherry branch. Design has black, deep blue and red leaves. Gold bamboo on sides and top. Lift off lid. Very pretty design.
There are a few tiny scratches here and there, nothing too big and not very noticeable. Just enough oxidization around the edges to peg this as vintage. Little bit of ‘crazing’ on the top design.
