Vintage Native American Tin, titled Hiawatha's Wedding Journey. This lithographed tin is an advertising tin from the Loose Wiles Sunshine Biscuits Co. The metal octagon box features a handle and would have been used as a sewing tin back in the day. A remarkable piece in very good vintage condition, the graphics are faded on the lid; with a nice aged patina, with age related crackling, edge wear, with finish loss. Stands nicely for display. The litho tin measures approximately 9,5"x9.5"x3.25". I cannot get the lid off and don't want to ruin the litho so I won't force it.

Has eight inscriptions over related "Hiawatha" Graphics.

4 With his moccasins of magic, at each stride a mile he measured;
5 And it floated on the river like a yellow leaf in autumn,
6 Of all the beasts he learned the languages, learned their names and all their secrets,

8 Who one morning, in the spring-time came to buy her father's arrows,
