Rare mid century Dickson's Institutional Spice Box, by Dickson Importing Co. Ltd (Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg). A wonderful industrial advertising box with great graphics and bright colours featuring a kitschy costumed waiter known as the "Dickson's Man" printed on three sides of the box. Container is made of thick cardboard with metal on the top & bottom. Container is empty now but originally held 1 pound of black pepper. Measures 7" tall by 3½" by 2½".
According to the fine example located in the Museum of Vancouver this tin was manufactured somewhere between 1950-1970.
Condition: Some slight staining and blemishes; some bumps & bruises but otherwise in fine vintage condition.
