Very nice large vintage toffees shop storage box from the famous Dutch brand, Van Melle`s - Breskens Holland.
On the front side is a yellow parrot, the left side a bird of paradise and on the right a peacock. (There is also a can with a red parrot on the font.)
The box does have some wear and tear but that gives also his authentic look.
Made in the Netherlands, Ca. 1930

History:
The family Van Melle, originally a bakers genus of Breskens, pretends to be the inventor of the phenomenon ' delicious '. Is that what far, because also the Romans quite knew what was tasty. The Melles were candy manufacturers. First on hand craft later on an industrial scale. Different members of the family who – as it is called – in the candy, the world went around looking for new recipes for their sugar.
B. Izaak van Melle began halfway through the 19th century with making ' sugar balls '. A candy that his Flemish servant taught him. The balls are proving immensely popular at a time that for most people candy an unprecedented luxury.

Size, 11,1/2 inch tall and 6 inch wide.
