For those of you who collect old advertising tins, or for those who don't, you can't go wrong with this cool old peanut brittle can to add a spot of vintage industrial color to your home.
A little history lesson... The D.L. Clark company was founded in 1886 near Pittsburgh, PA. and remained a family-owned business until 1955 when it was sold to Beatrice Foods. Even though reading about the candy industry is like traveling down a winding road, just remember this is the same company that made Clark Bars and Teabury Gum. Got it?
Tins like ours are highly collectible and hard to find. The graphics are clear with a yummy patina all its own. Here's your chance to grab a piece of candy history, and add an industrial flair to your space. Dated to the late 1800s to early 1900s.
In good vintage condition, the can shows overall soiling, paint loss, scratches, rust, scuffs, pitting, and dents - all consistent for age. The lid fits tightly. This item has not been cleaned or polished to preserve the original patina.
