Beautiful, intricate lithograph on the top and all sides of this antique display tin that has a its original, glass window front. It once held 5 pounds of Young & Smylie licorice lozenges. There are a few ounces of old licorice inside! Some are stamped, in the licorice, "American". I'm not sure if these were original to the bin, but they are very old, and certainly could be. It measures 7&1/2 inches tall, by 6 inches wide by 3&3/4 inches deep. The gold, silver and black lithograph is in very good condition for a tin piece that is about 110 years old. There is a slight bend in the back, at the top, so the lid doesn't quite fit snugly, and I have not tried to manipulate it back into place as to me it looks fine as it is. Also, a couple of small dents in the tin that frames the glass window. There is minor surface rust. I haven't cleaned, or polished it. I've included as many photos as I can, but feel free to request more, if you need them. Y&S (Young and Smylie) was started in Brooklyn, New York in 1845. An excellent addition to a collection of vintage, or antique general store, or tin advertising.
