This beautiful tin box comes from Holland and dates around 1920. It's four sides and lid are decorated with Chinese scenes that include birds, grapes, fans, and lanterns on a gold background with black frames, very much in the Chinoiserie style. The lid has a solid brass handle and brass latch on the front side; the inside is plain white metal. Of particular interest is the embossed mark on the bottom of the tin that reads "N.V. Chemische Fabriek "Glim" Rotterdam". Glim was a chemical factory in Rotterdam that also made glycerin soap, for which these tins were made for, as a container and display in the local shops. One of these exact tins is listed in the inventory of the Rotterdam Museum. The box measures 9 1/2" by 6 1/4" and is 6 1/4" in height; it is in beautiful condition with no loss or cracks. This is a unique and stunning piece for any collection! Please note that I have another larger tin listed from the same company.
