The lid of this vintage Pilgrim Fruit Cake tin is a dramatic red on white kitchen scene ringed with fruit. In the center, a pilgrim woman offers her fruit cake to her husband and an inexplicably eager child.
The tin, which originally held a two-pound fruit cake, measures 7" in diameter and 3" high. The fruit cake, the side of the lid says, was "made by Fruit Cake Bakers of America, Inc., Chicago 25, Ill. U.S.A." On the bottom, it says the tin itself was made by the Atlantic Can Co. (A.T.C.) of Delawanna, N.J. On the lid rim, it also says, "Made and litho'd in U.S.A," and all of the ingredients are also listed.
The lid is in very good condition, the interior of the pan is clean but has a couple of rust spots, and one side of the tin itself has several small rust spots as our photos should show. It has no major dents.
Whether you want something in which to offer your own fruit cake or just to add to your tins collection, its graphics make this is a gem of a tin.
