Nicely aged 1lb candy tin from Whitman Candy Company made in 1923 featuring "Salmagundi" by Alfons Mucha. Mucha collaborated with a number of companies that featured his artwork as graphic advertising. The Whitman Co was but one of them. Mucha's artwork can also be found on biscuit tins from the 20s.
My wife and I aren't tin collectors but we both love Mucha's artwork and of course anything to do with Art Noveau so we snapped this up right away. The tin now holds our own little treasures from beaches we've been to.
