1920s blue and cream biscuit tin with original paper labels by Jules Destropper
A wonderful vintage Jules Destrooper's biscuit tin with original paper labels. Jules Destrooper is a Belgian food company, still in existence today, based in Lo, West Flanders. It was founded in 1886 by Jules Destrooper and they are now best know for their small butterwaffle biscuits called lukken.
This old tin dates from the 1920s to 1930s and while somewhat tatty it is fantastic to have the original labels. They are cream and blue in colour with the labels written in French on one side, and I'm assuming Dutch on the other. The tin mentions Paris 1911, Gent 1922, Brussels 1923 and 1927 which relates to various awards Jules won for his biscuits.
The lid, which can be fully removed, has remnants of old silver paper tape on it. A great tin perfect to display, for use as an indoor planter, or for storing bits and bobs, haberdashery items or actual biscuits!
It measures 20 cm long by 10.5 cm wide and 9 cm high. This tin is in vintage condition and shows plenty of signs of use and wear, with worn labels, marks and scratches and some rust both inside and out.
