Japanese Confectionery Tins

Japanese Confectionery Tins


These Japanese confectionery tins will be a fantastic addition to any collection. Eitaro Confectionery tins were made in Tokyo in the beginning of the 1900s. The black box was for "Amananatto" or azuki beans covered in syrup and sugar. The name was shortened to "amanatto" after WW2 which helps date these tins. The red box was for "Umeboshi" or salted plums.

The base of the red tin is starting to seperate from the sides. The pictures show 4 of the 6 sides. The name of the treat is repeated on the long sides and the bottom is blank. The graphics are very clear on the top of the black tin but more faded on the red top.

Tins measure 6" x 4" x 2"
