Sale Here's a cool Tobacciana collectible, an EDGEWORTH Extra High Grade Sliced Pipe Tobacco tin, in excellent vintage condition! The blues and silver color on the top make it a pretty one too, with a cool design around the edges, and the words over a diamond shape design. A portion of a U.S. Internal Revenue stamp is on one edge; I'm guessing if the other half of the stamp was still there, it showed the tobacco tin had not been opened. At the bottom of the other words, it says "Larus & Bro. Co. Richmond, VA, U.S.A."
There's more wear to the bottom portion, which is a gold color, but it's still in good condition too, just scratched from use. Something cool I just noticed, there are ridges on the bottom that I guess probably was intended to be a striker for the matches when lighting your pipe. I've just become interested in different Vestas, or Match Safes, or I wouldn't have even thought about that being a striker, but I believe it must be.
This cute little tin has rounded corners and the size is one that could fit in a gentleman's shirt or pants pocket. It measures app. 3 1/2" x 2 1/4" and is just about 5/8" deep. You won't be disappointed to add this to your collection of tobacciana items or collectible tins.
