Authentic circa 1950 Vintage Archer Pol-mer-ik Linseed Oil Tin (One Pint Size) with lithographed red, white & blue imagery. A wonderful display/conversation piece... Fun can be had by scrutinizing old tins like this by perusing the print found on the exterior. Images and terms that were once appropriate for the time are now considered faux pas, such as these examples:

Authentic circa 1950 Vintage Archer Pol-mer-ik Linseed Oil Tin (One Pint Size) with lithographed red, white & blue imagery. A wonderful display/conversation piece... Fun can be had by scrutinizing old tins like this by perusing the print found on the exterior. Images and terms that were once appropriate for the time are now considered faux pas, such as these examples:

• "Caution Flammable: All oily cloths should be... burned promptly after using"
• "Boiled Linseed Oil is Not Edible"
• The image of a man applying linseed oil to his rifle (aka 'sports equipment' according to tin).
• An image of a housewife using the product while wearing a red/white apron with a cute little bow.

Condition:  Graphics on tin are still clear and crisp, colours are bright but there are some areas of staining on outside as a result of inner product spillage. Tin has some minor wear, oxidation, and small dents/scratches - otherwise good condition for a ~65-year old can. Tin measures 6½" tall by 3⅞" wide by 1¾" deep.
