Friday’s Favorites: Old Tin Boxes

Old Tin Boxes

Old Tin Boxes

Well I am a sucker  for boxes whether they be wooden, paper or old tin advertising boxes. I love the colors, and the faded scratched qualities. I have taken individual pictures of the boxes, and please feel free to download the large jpgs. (click on the image for the larger view). These are for your personal use only, use them for challenges, wallpaper, or whatever you wish, but please no commercial use for these pictures.

Most of the boxes pictured here were found at my grandparents house, others in my travels. Pictured here from the top:

  • A red tin cookie box, is from Mc Vitie & Price, Edinburgh.
  • Cuban Seal cigar box.
  • Player’s Cigarettes box.
  • Old Dutch  Typewriter Ribbon tin.
  • Thorne’s The World’s Premier Toffee tin (found at an antique swap meet).
  • Vaseline tin.
  • Tetley’s Tea box (found at an antique mall.)
  • Turret Cigarettes from Liverpool.
  • Swedish Anchovies Sprats (this was my dad’s, he used it to capture the grease from the barbeque).
  • Tum’s.
