Imperial Flowery Tea Tin - James Butler Choice Groceries
The script on this tin is just great, with such descriptive phrases as "The dream of half a century!", "Not obtainable elsewhere", and "The tea of heavenly delight", among others. Also states "From the famous gardens whose product has heretofore been reserved for Oriental Potentates"!
The lid states only "James Butler Choice Groceries", but in doing a little research I found that James Butler was an independent grocer in Long Island City, New York (L.I.C., N.Y.). At the time of his death in 1934 he had more than 1,100 stores and was second only to A & P in the New York area.
A great addition to an advertising or country store collection, and a nice kitchen display!
