Loving books, we also love anything in book form. Imagine how happy we were to find this charming old general store counter display for Herold Smoked Sardines, by H. Valvatne. This advertising tin box sat on a counter holding small packets of Herold smoked sardines.

Both the inside and outside are lithographed.  The sides representing page edges are beautifully painted to mimic the marbelized page edges to other work during the Victorian period. There are overall signs of age and normal use.  There are shallow surface scratches, minor dings and pings.  No major dents, holes, losses or what-have-you. The lid lifts correctly and easily; it closes easily, as well. 

A nostalgic memento from the general stores of small town America. 1 1/2lbs.  4 1/2" x 9 3/4" x 10 1/4"
