Vintage Barrel Tin

R150.00

Bizarrely I can’t seem to find any information on the 3 Rings Brand who this tin was made for, so I’m not sure what it was originally meant for? The dealer I bought it from thought that it maybe had been the packaging for a toy, but I’m not so sure? The obvious guess would be biscuits, although I suppose it could have used for anything!

It’s a great tin, one of the nicest I’ve seen – I love the illustrations of the kids, with the occasional adult and pet thrown in. It’s such a great style of drawing, and the colours are so cheerful! There is some wear to the paint work on the tin, and it’s not super easy to open, but wouldn’t it just look fabulous in a kid’s bedroom? Maybe you could fill it with lego as per the dealer’s suggestion!

Your obvious guess is obviously right. I could not find anything about it on google either but I remember Three Rings biscuits as well as I remember Three Trees tea and Breganza coffee and Vote toothpaste!

Thanks Elna! Nothing like a first hand account as validation! 🙂
