COWBOY roly poly tin, this one is not marked however I have a duplicate that is dated made in 1979. This tin is marked Patent Applied For. Originally American Tobacco controlled Tindeco (tin container manufacturer), as well as the brands of tobacco sold in these tins. Each container held about 1 lb of tobacco with the brand names Mayo’s or Dixie Queen appearing on the backside. This tin is in very good condition and colors are vibrant. There is a very small dimple on top of his head and in his bandana.. A few light surface scratches. The head has ribbed texture when felt, it was made this way. Overall size is 6 1/2" tall , 5 3/4" diameter at the waist, top lifts off. The Cowboy was the replacement for the original Dutchman. Tin has been cleaned and waxed. As shown in the photo on the backside Mayo’s Cut Plug Tobacco pack is advertised. See Photos.
The underside reads, "This BROWNIE Tin Comes in Different Designs, GET A COLLECTION. This Brand of Tobacco Has Been Been Before the Public for a Great Number of Years---In Quality it Stands Unsurpassed". We have available duplicate roly poly tins; two 1980 SANTAs and two 1979 Business Man. See our other listings. We also have one Singer.
The originals of the tins were designed to be used as tobacco containers, that is why the brand is often featured on the back side. Cheinco Industries, produced this series of lithographed roly poly tins which were marketed by Bristol Ware, a division of Cheinco.
This and other replica round tobacco tins we have listed are perfect as storage tins or use simply for display. See photo last photo for other tins we are selling, . Photo #6 shows both Cowboy tins available
