SEE THESE TINS IN COUNTRY LIVING MAGAZINE (Sept. 2010 p. 44) - Collection of Five Early Advertising Talc Tins - Advertising

These great talc tins were purchased by the editorial staff of Country Living Magazine from my shop "Oh." on Ruby Lane. You can see four of them in the Sept. 2010 issue in the "What Is It? What Is It Worth?" section on page 44... the magazine says a reader wrote in about them, but now you know where they came from! So shop where Country Living shops... right here at "Oh."

Shhh... "Oh." is one of Country Living's best kept secrets.


A ready made collection of charming old talc tins, a really wonderful variety. Perfect to create that old-fashioned ambiance we all love, designers take note.

There's "Lilacs and Roses" by Lander, Fifth Avenue, New York; "Djer-Kiss" by Kerkoff, New York; "Audacia;" and a great old wartime cardboard cone-shaped "victory" package of "Cashmere Bouquet." The fifth tin, the shortest, has no label or name and might be for talc or spices, I'm not certain, but it looks just great in this collection.

Condition is very good. There is appropriate wear, and teensy bit of rust on one side of the Djer-Kiss tin. Please look at the photographs. The tallest tin stands 7 3/4", the shortest 4 1/4".

If you've got a ledge or display cabinet in your bath or dressing room, you need these. No need to search them out one by one, the hard part is done. Be your own designer, they'll look great in your room or a guests.
