      Hi,
      Carnation corn caps were invented in the 1920's. The original Co. was founded in 1878! They had another partner come in ( Gerrad ) when one backed out to stop them from flailing. They are still going strong today. Your tin looks to be an original from the 20's-30's :) hope this helps!
