Vintage Daher Floral Tin - Made in England circa 1970s
The manner of giving is worth more than the gift. Pierre Cornieille
A pretty vintage tin knows no boundaries! Made in England in the 1970s for Daher, a US-based gift packaging company headquartered in Long Island, New York, this vintage tin with its pretty floral pattern was used to package all sorts of things. From beauty products to chocolate, tea to biscuits, anything packaged in a Daher tin was really two gifts in one thanks to their attractive containers. We discovered one example where a similar tin was used as packaging for bath salts for a California department store, while another one was used to house tea bags from an important company. So many unique adventures existed for such dynamic packaging.
This one is of a unique design with its flat back and curved front, and features Daher's colorful floral chintz pattern. Of course, there are a zillion ways to incorporate this petite caddy into your space, but around here we especially like it as a pantry organizer or a kitchen countertop storage helper for everyday necessities. The hinged lid and flat back panel are a space-saving alternative since the tin can be positioned flush against the wall while still opening and closing the lid to access its contents.

In lovely vintage condition. The exterior is very colorful and shiny. There is some light rust spots around the bottom edge on the exterior and the top edge of the rim as expected with age. The interior is very clean and bright with just some slight rusting around the bottom edges on the interior. Please see photos.
