From heritage brand E. Kahn’s Sons Co. of Cincinnati, Ohio, this is a nice piece of history in the form of a large beautifully enameled metal advertising tin, formerly used for lard.
According to the Kahn’s website, “What began as a simple neighborhood retail Meat market in 1883 soon became a Cincinnati favorite. Perhaps founder Elias Kahn selected the American Beauty Rose as his trademark knowing his company would continue to bloom and grow. It didn’t take long for him to become known as the preferred provider of select cuts of Meat and several varieties of sausage. After his death in 1899, his children founded E.Kahn’s and Sons and continued the business with their father’s commitment to quality. By 1926, E.Kahn’s and Sons was one of the largest independent Meat processing companies around.”
Measures 16″ in diameter, 18.5″ tall, with two metal handles, and shows abrasions and wear consistent with age, but in overall good condition with minor rust.
