Queen's Taste Coffee 1 lb. tin from the Wm. Schotten Company, St. Louis, Mo. This is 6 7/8" tall tin with an applied paper label. The label on this tin has darkening from age, scattered small stains and age spots and areas of label loss mostly centered around the top of the can where the lid was initially cut away and opened (see photos). There is also an area of label loss on the rim of the lid. Regardless of the wear and age issues the can still holds its own and displays wonderfully. The colors are bright and the graphic presentation of the lady serving coffee is eye catching. The lid on this can shows aging and denting but is nicely embossed. The inside is clean and contains an original old paper coupon. This is a wonderful example of an early Schotten Company coffee tin that is not seen very often.
Circa 1910-1925, dimensions, 6 7/8" tall x 4 1/4" diameter
