Bluebird Marshmallow Advertising Tin

Advertising containers and products sold in the old country store are now collectibles. Advertising tin cans or canisters were first used commercially in the United States in 1819 and were called tins.

This triangular Vintage Bluebird Brand Marshmallow advertising tin is by the Harry Horne Co. Ltd. Toronto Canada. It is in decent condition. There are no dents, just some rust and wear as common for a tin of this age. It is still very attractive and displays well. Would make a nice addition to any antique collection.

The lid has more rust and wear than the actual tin. Graphics on the container are clear. Graphics on the lid are less visible due to rust/staining. There are small rust spots on the tin itself.

Size Triangular tin 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" Tin is for auction on E-Bay, Item number: 7161075197 SOLD!
