Rare Antique French Biscuit Tin "Biscuit St. Michel"
The tin box is covered with a custom printed paper. The lid has the large white chicken who holds a galette in her beak (the galettes are imprinted with the family name along with an image of the archangel defeating the devil). Each of the four sides has a paper cover which features the famous chicken in a central medallion with radiating rays in red and black going to the outer sides. The bottom of the box has a paper covering with information about the ingredients, the company and the biscuit.
The box measures: 5" tall, 8 1/2" square and 4 1/2" deep. The interior of the box is of shiny tin. The box is in good condition, there is wear to the top design (missing edges, darkening of the paper). The sides are in very good condition with on small missing bits of paper at the edges. The box is sound.
Early tins from this maker are impossible to find as they are one of the most coveted examples of collectors. This tin would be absolutely perfect on a shelf of a French kitchen, bringing a delicious visual taste to the room.
