The tin was issued circa 1940, and it likely contained Christmas herrings. The lid is bordered by a mistletoe design and reads "God Jul!" ("Merry Christmas" in Norwegian). Snow White appears to be serving the fish on a tray. The two animals on the floor are a chipmunk and squirrel, but it's interesting that they've been given the markings of a skunk. Was this a not-so-subliminal message about the odor to be found within the tin?
