ANTIQUE VICTORIAN Lithographed Tin Easter Egg Candy Container
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: More than likely from Germany, here's a lithographed tin candy container in the shape of an Easter egg. The graphics on the container depict a young boy dressed as a soldier sitting on a rocking horse. By his side stands a little girl holding a doll.
CONDITION: For its age, very nice. There is some light wear to the top graphic but not much. The back of the container is a darker red than the top cover; it too shows age patination with light surface marks. The inside of the egg shows the type of patina to tin one would expect after 100 years or so of age.
METAL CONTENT: Tin
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: About 2-3/4" long x 2" wide; depth is about 1-7/8".
FINAL COMMENTS: Old time toys are always a great visual feast to the eyes - I can't believe I found a lovely like this!
