USA - Company/Subject Index of Tins

The majority of the tins representing all the companies or subjects listed below on this INDEX page, were originally sold with a food or beverage item in them.  I'd say the 1990's decade probably had the greatest number of special-decorative-commemorative U. S. food product tins.  This will be verified the day in the future when all the tins are documented here!😉  Donna Kozak, Founder

The beginning -- I pretty much picked this up on the way out of the country for the next 9 years.  It seemed like it would be a touch of home. (1982)

I grew up on a farm in Wisconsin - a LOT of German ancestry.  What a surprise to find that a candy company in La Crosse, Wis., used this tin stein (with a plastic handle) in which to sell candy.  It was made in West Germany, i.e. pre-1989.

Every once in awhile in the German flohmarkts, I'd come across a "salt box" which I'd buy as "old world kitchenalia." But never having seen any in people's homes during my years, I never understood the purpose until I did a "search" of "why people have salt boxes."  Oh, my, what a wealth of historical knowledge of Grandma's world.  And what a treasure to have a representative one in tin!
