$88.00 $110.00

The gorgeous Quaker Best Corn Meal advertising tin is in great to excellent condition given its age and purpose for which it was produced. The slightly distressed appearance is very popular and desirable on metal advertising tins.

The capacity of this gorgeous Quaker Best Corn Meal tin is approximately 3 quarts.

This gorgeous tin has the perfect amount of patina and age to accent virtually any color. The beautiful red and gold lid is accented with a Quaker figure positioned inside a triangle with corn stalks on each side. The yellowish gold color on the bottom section was applied with a gorgeous crackle appearance. Also, there are three silver window sections portraying a bowl of corn meal on an elegantly dressed table with "The Best in every way" at the bottom. This was a very powerful advertising tin (and still is) as it pulls on the heart strings from our childhood. The days of looking through the windows or doors just to see mom or grandma standing over a freshly prepared family meal are becoming harder and harder to remember with each passing day. However, this tin helps bring those really good ole days.

There are no breaks, cracks, large dents, or crush spots on this gorgeous Quaker Corn Meal advertising tin. There are a couple of little ping-like places on the bottom that are very shallow and hardly noticeable even when looking directly at the bottom. There are some distressed vintage wear and rub marks on this gorgeous Quaker Corn Meal tin. All three silver window section are in very good to great condition. One has a few little marks that have to be search for while the the other has a some that are more noticeable. The last silver window section has more rub and wear marks over the Quaker Corn Meal Box that the others. The interior is clean with a rustic patina developing - mainly around the bottom edge where it meets the sides.

The decorative possibilities for this beautiful Quaker Advertising tin are many. The shelf along the top of the kitchen cabinets would be a great place to showcase this gorgeous 1950s metal treasure. Also, the display case or china cabinet would be enhanced and accented by the addition of this beautiful Quaker Corn Meal tin. While it may be more desirable to simply use this beautiful tin as a decorative piece, this can is still in nice usable condition - especially for items still in their original packaging. The counter tops would spring to life upon the arrival of this timeless metal tin.

The collector will appreciate this beautiful metal Quaker Corn Meal advertising tin for its great to excellent condition, timeless colors, powerful message, and perfectly distressed appearance.

This particular tin is from Cheinco Housewares by J. Chein Co. located at that time in Burlington New Jersey.

The gorgeous Quaker Best Corn Meal advertising tin weighs 9.4 oz.

The round cylinder shaped metal tin measures 7 7/16" tall x 5 9/16" wide across the top from outside to outside x 5 9/16" wide across the bottom from outside to outside.

***Free Shipping in the USA

***Shipping will include insurance

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:

If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of manufacturing or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
