Dating to the early 1920s this Art Deco era tin box would have been filled with candy and distributed during the Christmas season. Featuring graphics relating to the famous "Twas the Night Before Christmas" poem, this antique box has all the "shabby chic" patina one desires in an old piece of Christmas. Now the box is not without issues, the 2 main points in contention are the rust showing on the outside and in and the break at the back of the cover near the hinge. That's it. The handle still moves up and down with ease - the lid opens and closes as it should although the left side of the lid needs to be pushed down a little so that it is flush with the base. In terms of displayability - well, if you have a lot of old Christmas, this piece is going to fit right in perfectly!
Size: When the handle is down, the box measures 4-5/16" long x 2-5/16" wide x 2-5/16" high.
Tindeco tins are usually priced by condition. In searching the net, a pristine box commands around $200 or so on the Internet.
