This is a beautiful scenic tin made for the Artstyle Chocolate Company of Boston & St, Louis. The tin measures 9 1/4" long by 5 3/4" wide and 2 3/4" high. It is circa 1920's, fully decorated on all sides with a fantastic garden with a lovely classic wall. The top has a Mother's day homage and a further view of the garden with a swan in a lake and towering trees. As a tin collector I have seen this numerous times, but never in such good condition with such high color.. The only fault is that the paper on the top is slightly wrinkled as if it had some moisture a some time in it's past. This is an A grade lithographic advertising tin.

The retailer in me wants more dimension, color, texture and artistry. Beauty or whimsey are a must.
