Close's Hard Candy Tin, 8 1/2" tall, 5 1/2" diameter, lift off lid. George Close started his candy company in 1861 and after a fire destroyed his first factory he moved to Cambridge, Mass in 1879. Though known in its day for chocolates, suckers, lemon drops, sponge cakes and butter balls, today the George Close name is most recognized by baseball card collectors. Unfortunately the company did not survive the Depression. See photos all sides of the tin are shown.
