This old tin features the comic strip characters of the Dagwood and Blondie comic strip. On the front it reads; Blondie Paints - Dagwood - World’s Champ Snacker Artist - Brilliant Colors. It shows Dagwood, surrounded by the yapping pups, carrying an artist’s palette and the makings for one of Dagwood’s famous sandwiches. A picture of Blondie is in the corner. Across the bottom it shows the paints were made by the American Crayon Co. of Sandusky, Ohio and New York. It has a 1946 copyright by King Features Syndicate, Inc.. On the lid there are remnants of the original price from McCrory’s with the price of .39c. There are no graphics and no paints inside the tin.
It measures about 4 1/2" by 5 11/16" and is in fairly good condition with nice color and gloss and light wear. There are a few small scuffs and minor dents on the lid, the bottom has a few creases.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
