Snow White "Cottage" Tin Made in England

A Snow White rectangular tin with "thatched roof" lid, originally held a hard candy mix from Walt Disney World. Probably sold at Disneyland too. Dates from the 1980s. Container was made in England, most likely by the same company that produced the round tin seen in an earlier Archive entry.

It stands approximately 3.625" high and measures 5" long x 2.75" wide. The outside finish has a light sand-like texture.



Illustrations wrap around the sides in chronological order.





"Thatched roof" lid.




An imprint with the text "CONTAINER MADE IN ENGLAND" is stamped on bottom. Plus we can compare two slightly different WDW candy labels.

  3. It does look more "vintage" than it really is.
