- Kitchen Tins, Toasters, Treasures and Tidbits
Tins make fun, inexpensive decor and help add a vintage feel
to kitchens. They are also great for storage in the kitchen, on
your desk or in your car.
A Few of
Collectible Advertising Tins
& Palmers Black Lotus Tin
This is another amazing tin from my
collection. It is a flat round tin with an embossed design of a
dragon across a landscape of flowers in pink, gold, and blue on a black
background. There is a pagoda and bridge in the background. The
sides are plain black except for a small pink block with the word LOTUS
reversed out in black on the lid. On the bottom side is a tiny mark
reading Made in England in white.
The bottom is embossed HUNTLEY
& PALMERS BISCUITS, READING, HUYTON (LIVERPOOL) & LONDON
ENGLAND. From my research I have discovered another tin like this
in the Reading
Museum in England.
Blossom and Bird 'Lacquered' Tin
Beautiful vintage tin with a design inspired
by fine, lacquered antiques. Blue bird flies above a flowering cherry
branch. Design has black, deep blue and red leaves. Gold
bamboo on sides and top. Lift off lid. Very pretty design. Few
tiny scratches here and there, nothing too big and not very
noticeable. Just enough oxidization around the edges to peg this
as vintage. Little bit of 'crazing' on the top design.
An Aluminum percolator with a metal bottom.
The handle is wood painted black
The lid is topped with glass
so you can watch the coffee percolate. It has a spreader, basket and
tube. It didn't come with a cord, but I don’t really care.
It’s pretty on my shelf without the extra baggage . The spout
opening has a little nick. She is 11 1⁄2"
Westinghouse Electric Waffle
This is an early Sears invention. This compact
opens at the top. Waffle iron stands about 4 1/2" tall, 9"
Marked on the bottom "S#284284 - Type A, 100 - 110V, 600W,
Westinghouse & M. Co. Mansfield, Ohio, Made In USA Patented
June-6-05 April-20-09 Patent Applied For".
Vintage Sun Chief Toaster
This is a beautiful, clean
vintage Sun Chief Toaster. It has drop sides and is fairly clean
inside. It has the attached cord, but given its age it is being sold
for decorative purposes only.
The bottom is marked Sun Chief, Series 680, watts 660 volts 115, Sun
Chief Electrics Inc, Winsted, Conn USA There is a UL logo underneath.
Great vintage kitchen decor!
