Advertising coffee, one pound tin, FANCY COFFEE was distributed by the Central Fruit and Grocery Co., of Mansfield, Ohio. Made by Woolsons, a Vienna coffee. It is very rare for a coffee tin in cobalt blue. Circa 1920. Tin is 6" tall, 4" diameter. The tin was cleaned and waxed. Some minor wear. Coffee tin has original screw off embossed lid. NO rust, a small crease in tin on the back side, it was pushed out so it is not noticeable. This is a very difficult tin to find verging on rare. Regional Coffee Tins such as this one were not produced for a long run of several years and not mass marketed in large grocery store chains. For this reason there is just not many of them surviving today. I have several excellent examples of Regional COFFEE Tins listed for sale. This is the only one I have seen in 35 years collecting advertising tins. See photos.
