Rare Chinoiserie Tin Box
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.
