Vintage Tins (Each)

R45.00R65.00

I don’t buy tins that often, but sometimes there’s something about them that catches my eye – the brand, the colours, the condition- and in the case of this collection of small tins, it was a matter of all of the above! I first saw the Strepsils tins, and being a regular user of the cough sweets, I was immediately drawn to it. While the scratches on the tin look really prominent in the photo, in real life they’re not quite as noticeable – in fact bizarrely I didn’t even see the damage until I bought the tin home with me. There’s also some wear to the Max cigarettes tin, but again, it’s nothing too serious – and otherwise the tins are in excellent condition for their age!

As cool as they are, I’m not quite sure what you would do with them? Obviously they’d make great display pieces, but I also like items to be practical. The Max tin could carry on serving its original purpose as a cigarette case, and I suppose the other tins could be used for holding jewellery, or as a spot to store some medicines when you travel – I recently started keeping my plasters in an old tin, and it makes me so much happier than having a cardboard box in my bathroom cabinet – but then again I am a little odd…..
