|A vintage 7-1/2" high x 6-1/2" x 4" rectangular Ocean Blend Indian & Ceylon Tea tin with an unusual deep teal blue background and superb graphics of a steamship. This Canadian (Toronto and Peterboro (sic) tin was manufactured by Macdonald Mfg. Co. Limited Toronto; we haven't seen one with the blue colour before. This excellent advertising piece is in very good original condition with the following condition notes: one panel and one side excellent graphics and colour with minor spotting and scrapes, one side panel scrapes to paint below TEA, other side panel spots of wear and stains/residue from masking tape (not removed), surface scraping and loss of surface to lid, small dent to edge at one side panel, and splits to rear of lid at the hinges (from surface to hinge). Otherwise this is a nice, clean presentable example. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are secondhand and may have slight signs of gentle use. Surface shipping to the U.S. starts at $9 (other spots may vary) - insurance included to $95. Items paid with a credit card will be shipped to confirmed addresses only. We do ship internationally.
