This piece of tinwear came from Holland. It stands about 12" high, and is approx 6" in diameter.
Comes with a lid.
- It has 1939 - 1945 on it -
- Has pictures of "Stalin, Churchill, Roosevelt, and Chiang Kai Sheck -
- Has the 4 flags of the USA, China, Russia and England -
- Has crests with spelling in Dutch as follows : Nederland, Engeland, Frankruk, Amerika, Belgie, China and Rusland.

It must have something to do with WWII, but am not sure, and that is why I like it and would like to find out more about it.

    Found it...World War II: Large Commemorative Tin Canister. 6.25" in diameter and 10.5" high. The canister was made in the Netherlands to commemorate the end of the Second World War. The Dutch Royal Arms are on the lid, as well as the flag of the Netherlands and the banner of the Royal House of Orange. The front of the canister pictures Allied leaders Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Joseph Stalin, and Chiang Kai-shek, with the flags of their countries (the Chinese flag and arms used are those of Imperial China rather than those of the Republic of China).
