"SHU-TONE" Shoe Polish litho tin from Julius Cohn & Co., Merchants & Manufacturers, Adelaide.

The bottom of the tin is embossed "ACORN For Floors.....SHU-TONE For Shoes" The top of the tin has very light wear with more litho wear apparent on the sides. All in all a really sharp little collectible. The tin is approximately 1" tall and 2 3/4" in diameter.
