Who dreams of owning an old biscuit tin from Switzerland, decorated with famous Old World paintings? Well, we've got you covered!
This lovely piece of Swiss advertising history is noteworthy in its rarity. Rustic, weathered and worn, she's really all you could want in an antique biscuit tin. So much character and charm, you'll want to display her center stage.
Our remarkable lithograph tin previously stored Biscuits Oulevay from the Morges region of Switzerland. Each side of the box and the lid are decorated with various paintings and description. Included are paintings of Lausanne, Chillon et la Dent du Midi, Village Du Tessin, and Morges du Mont Blanc.
A wonderful gift for the collector, or display her proudly in your rustic living space.
Swiss biscuit manufacturer Oulevay was a major player in the European confections industry, eventually collaborating with Wernli (1972) and formed Interbiscuit Holding.
