Several months ago I came across this tin. I was drawn to it because of the pretty flowers, but then something in the back of my memory kept telling me I had seen these types of tins before. Once I turned it over and looked at the price, I knew it was going home with me.
This is a Daher candy tin and the tin was made in England. I did a quick search online and remembered I had seen these on a blog a few years ago. I tell you I did not spend too much time looking at all the different tins that you can find online, this could be a "new collection" in no time at all.
I found this great article that talks about what to look for when collecting these candy tins and a little bit of history about the containers themselves. My favorite part is the beautiful floral decor and the adorable knob on top.
I really like the vintage photo element on the photo of this tin, really makes it feel more vintage to me!
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!! Have a wonderful week!
