My daughter picked up these 2 pantry tins at a family run estate sale. She has an eye for the kind of items I like. At estate sales, two eyes are better than one! I would hate to leave something this neat behind for someone else!!!! I don't think I have ever seen a tin this large with the holes in the top. One tin has the holes, the other doesn't. Thanks to Another Time Antiques on Etsy, I now know the one with the holes is for allowing dough to rise and the color dates it to the 1920-1930's era. Close up of top. It makes perfect sense that this is used for dough to rise! The second tin is the same size, without the holes. They are not the typical green that you commonly see. It seems more an aqua color.
I love fabric from the 30-50's, old paper such as postcards, magazines, old Christmas, well I guess anything old!! I also love to scrapbook and like vintage graphics from the 30-50's. I currently sell through my two Etsy stores, AntiquesGaloreGal and VintageTinsel
