This roly poly tin was produced by Cheinco Housewares, a division of Chein Industries, Inc. This is a replica of an antique Brownie tobacco container manufactured in the United States circa 1912. The original antique tins when available sell for several hundreds of dollars. This line gives collectors a more affordable option yet still has the charm of the originals.
This particular tin, the Singing Waiter, is in excellent condition with no dents or rust. There is slight fading on the brow area of the face, but otherwise the colors are vibrant. There are a few insignificant surface scratches. The tin measures about 6.75" high and about 5.5" wide. This one comes with a paper insert about the collectible tins.
