This old one pound coffee tin for Peak Coffee is not the typical key wind. This style of 1# coffee tin was used primarily in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The tin features a mountain range that encompasses the whole tin. On one side there is also a small image of a man pouring coffee beans into a grinder and on the other side is a woman holding her can of Peak Coffee. The back panel has directions on how to best enjoy your coffee. Peak Coffee was distributed by the Independent Grocers Alliance Distributing Co. of Chicago. The round tin has a screw on lid with embossed arrows showing which way to turn to open.
It measures about 5 ¾” tall and about 4 3/8” in diameter. It is in fairly good condition with nice color and good gloss. There are a few dents and some scratch wear. Some of the scratches blend into the graphics looking like highlights and snow in the mountains. Much of the gold is worn from the outer edge and the raised areas of the lid. The inside is generally clean with minor discoloration. This could make a nice canister and accent piece on a kitchen counter.
