"King Cole Coffee" 1 lb. litho coffee tin from G.E. Barbour Limited, New Brunswick, Canada.  The G.E. Barbour Company was established  in the 1860's.  They were primarily a food importer and wholesaler specializing in coffees, teas, and spices.  G.E. Barbour was a successful company from the beginning but in 1910 they purchased a small local brand of tea called King Cole and this changed everything.  The company began to grow in leaps and bounds and from 1910 to 1925 they purchased a plethora of small companies. G.E. Barbour retired the "King Cole" brand in the 1970's.

This can is a wonderful example of one of G.E. Barbour's earlier King Cole coffee tins.  The litho graphics and colors are quite spectacular.  The litho is in excellent condition showing only very minor wear and the wonderfully embossed gold tone lid, although showing wear, still adds a lot of class to what was already a beautiful tin.  This is one of the most impressive early coffee tins we have ever offered for sale.

Circa: 1910-1930, dimensions, 5 3/4" tall x 4" diameter.
