This colorful old tin is a “King Size” key wind tin that once held Circus Mixed Nuts. The tin has red and white vertical stripes which make you think of the Big Top tent. On one side is the Circus name and a small logo of a elephant like Dumbo flying through a hoop. There is also a picture of the assortment of nuts that were to be found inside the tin. The back of the tin has the recipe for Party Mix made with Circus Nuts and Ralston Chex cereal. There are also graphics of a clown and pictures of the cereal boxes and a bowl of the snack mix on this back panel. The 13 ounces tin was from Circus Foods Inc. of San Francisco and the tin has a 1957 copyright.
It measures almost 3 ½” tall and about 5 1/8" in diameter. It is in nice condition with good gloss and minor scuff and scratch wear.
