This is a West Bend tea canister in aluminum with a black painted lid. The canister is 5" tall and 4 1/2" wide. It is in very good condition. Aluminum is a soft metal the scratches and scuffs easily, which has happened to this piece. There is also wear to the black paint, but really not too bad considering the age. The front has a decoration of a teapot with the word "Tea" in script across it. The knob of the lid is marked West Bend, and the base of the canister is marked West Bend Made in USA.
