This is an old tin that use to contain 11 oz. of Peter Pan Peanut Butter. The front of the tin has a shield in the center with the name and company information and stated that the peanut butter was “Improved by Hydrogenation”. The outline of the shield is trimmed with metallic silver and to either side are figures of a young boy you’d expect to see flitting through a forest playing his pan flute. The back is designed the same but the inset of the shield tells how the peanut butter was made. The tin is light yellow black and orange and the silver accents. It has a pry off lid which has the same colors and theme as the body of the tin. There are three raised tabs that would have been used to pry against. This Peter Pan peanut butter was from the E.K.Pond Company of Chicago and I believe it is from the early 1900’s.
It measures about 3 ½” in diameter and 2 ¾” high and is generally in good condition with nice color and gloss. The front of the tin has minimal wear but unfortunately the back half of the tin has had something dribble down the side which has stained the paint. There are also a small place where the litho has been scratched. The lid also has a few minor scratched and a little bit of the dribbled goop.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
