My niece found this 8"x5" tin while clearing out a farmhouse in Iowa. It is marked "manufactured by Artstyle Chocolate Company Boston St. Louis USA". After doing a little online research I found it is from the 20's-30's. There are at least 15 images so this butterfly motif was popular. (Also popular and fitting on Mother's Day, "Dear Mother" tin) There are 4 slots in the lid which I believe held a paper or ribbon handle - possibly imprinted Artstyle Chocolates? If anyone can help me solve the mystery of the slots, please do :-)
And, the Amgen Tour of California race is happening outside right now. Ocean Blvd is quiet except for the whoosh of bikers and their support teams following behind. Kind of neat and relates to butterflies a little......
