Vintage 1950's fruitcake tin from Collins Street Bakery, Corsicana, Texas, USA.
7" diameter x 2 1/2" h covered box.
Excellent for holiday treats, sweet gifts, trinket storage, and western kitchen display
The cover of the tin features three scenes from historic Texas that the bakery founders call Slice of Life.
They call their fruitcakes that too.
The wording and lettering on the tin have changed in the 125 years of business but the Slice of Life design remains.
This tin has the address of the historic location on 7th Avenue, prior to the opening of additional locations.
From the company's website, which has images of advertising through the years I date this tin to approximately 1954.
It is spectacularly clean inside and out.
