Unusual, Vintage Motto Candy Tin - With Love to Mother
This old motto is actually part of a vintage, Artstyle Chocolates tin. The sides of the tin box are beautiful decorated with colorful flowers and trees on a gold background. The bottom of the tin reads; Manufactured by Artstyle Chocolate Company - Boston - St. Louis - U.S.A.. The lid is molded tin to look like a frame and it has a paper inset. The design follows the same theme as the sides of the tin but has added detail which includes a swan, and of course, the motto. The poem is titled “With Love to Mother” and the author is unidentified. The back of the lid has a hole so this could have been removed from the tin and hung on the wall so it is surprising that the two pieces have stayed together all of these years. The tin held One Pound Net.
This would be a fun Mother’s Day gift, once again, filled with chocolates.
The tin measures about 5 3/8” by 9 1/8” by 2 5/8” and is in very nice condition with minimal wear and minor soiling. There is a small tear in the paper insert of the lid which I have shown in the photos.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
