Tins and Things

Hi Dear Folk,

Mr.B, sometimes take a drive out a little further into the country, although every where there seems to be building going on so hard to totally qualify it as country, but it used to be and it's further out from Philly.  We have four fav thrifts and book shops that we hit at the same time.  Followed by a Wendy's $0.50 cent ice-cream, yes we are big spenders.

I love to collect a little something different in the cuisine area and this slotted into that spot.  They have to be made in some country other than China, unless authentically Chinese.  This fit into that criteria, made in the USA.

What do you think it was used for?  Almost reminds me of an old English blancmange shape, but they were usually glass, and you could not actually stand this.  Any ideas?  Please do offer them.  The bottom pulls away from the top as you can see has a handle on the top and the bottom.

An English tin with hinges.  Have you noticed a lot of tins are not hinged anymore, except small mint tins.

This crochet pattern caught my eye and it has a very simple construction.



  1. I love your thrifting finds. Could it be a bed warmer. Long shot I know but I can't think of anything else.
