Vintage 1960s Mismatched Confectionary Tin - Hills of Westchester & Deer Park Baking Company
Touched with delicacy, grace and good taste... confections by Hills of Westchester are a delicious way to say "Hello" - "Greetings" - "Thank You." (from a 1968 Hills of Westchester advertisement)
This vintage 1960s-era confectionary tin is the Gemini of all sweet treat packaging. Having a dual personality with a mismatched aesthetic, the lid is from the Deer Park Baking Company in Hammonton, NJ. The bottom is from Hills of Westchester, which was based in Brentwood, MD.
Located just 2.5 hours away from each other, Deer Park was known for their boxed (tinned) danishes and Hills of Westchester was known for their wide assortment of gourmet cookies, cakes, petit fours, and macaroons. While both companies were famous for different types of desserts, this tin combines the best of both worlds - dynamic presentation, colorful character, and a dual dose of baking history.
Complimentary colors of bright pink, yellow and red tie each piece together to make a one-of-a-kind storage container or unique gift wrap for your best baked goods.
