Ship shaped cookie jar ship, the Normandie, made out of tin, from France, 1935. Heavy signs of use but still very decorative.
-Is it the Titanic?
- No, it is the Normandie.
-Is it a tin toy?
- Yes, but it doubles as a cookie tin
But she does sink like the Titanic, since her bottom is riddled with holes just like....... the Titanic.
Collecters item, in heavily used condition. A cookie jar shaped like a large passenger ship. From 1935. Made in France to hold those crispy thin biscuits they make over there. Is missing its flags, has holes in the bottom and the chimneys have come loose. But i will try to fix that by soldering them back on (yes, yes, I can do that)
So the price is a lot lower than you see elsewhere on the internet for similar tins (just google it). But if you want to have it as a showpiece, then you have a very nice piece of 'almost' antique if you buy this one.
Dimensions: height (with cookie jar pulled up) 18 cm, length 57 cm, width 14 cm.
