This exhibit is part II of a sampler of Dutch cigar tins, covering the period between WWI and WWII, basically the 1920’s and 30’s. The majority of tins after WWI were flats (one cigar deep), pocket size, convenient for a man’s jacket or pants, or to be carried in a woman’s purse. They were small, utilitarian and intended to be discarded. Designs were bold, to be recognized at a distance.

        The tins seen here are the property of Bob Hommes and Pete Lingg  from Amsterdam. The good stuff you see is theirs. Any errors are mine.
