Early Tin Litho Easter Egg Kids in Grass Candy Container

This early tin litho Easter egg was a candy container from the turn of the last century. It measures 2-1/8" tall x 1-5/8" wide x 1-5/8" deep. It has 2 kids playing in the grass - it looks like they have a caterpillar or worm?! The front has a beige background with dark blue, yellow and a little bit of red. The back is metallic red. This piece was probably made in Germany, but it is not marked!

It does have some nicks to the litho. Overall the picture is nice and clear. The back is missing quite a bit of it's red color - but it has a nice patina. Most of the specks in the background are part of the design.
