Old 60s biscuit and sweet tins are now very collectible, particularly tins in good condition that still seal well, have working hinges and can be repurposed. I didn’t set out to collect tins- but the kitschy botanical images on this sweet tin totally sucked me in.
The Pascall tin also has its original sticker- another plus for collectors. This tin once held 1lb of sweets and the touched up photographic image on the front was – to the 60s eye- a glamour shot. Sweets and then a glamorous box to keep and collect: it didn’t get much better.
I’ve teamed the tin with an old Pritchards switchplate- they both have the same mottled metal colourings and a 60s chrome rose that fell off an old wall-hanging. A unity of metal and shape and form.
The retro sweet tin is for sale: $AUD45
