This old vertical pocket tin was for Holiday Pipe Mixture manufactured by Larus & Bro. Co. Inc. of Richmond, Virginia. The front of the tin has a large palm tree frond at the top and on ocean liner and sail boats at the bottom where it reads; Aromatic in the Pack – Aromatic in the Pipe. On the back is a statement with the phrase; Truly a “Holiday” from the ordinary. Part of the tax stamp remains on the top of the hinged lid and down the sides.
The empty tin measures about 4 3/8” by 3” by 7/8” and it is in generally nice condition with good gloss and minimal scratch wear to the front. Something has caused the surface of the back to be slightly textured which is noticeable at different angles in the light. There is some rust on the inside of the lid which is shown in the photos.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
