One of my favorite collectibles to get out at Christmas time is a canister that we found in an antique shop about 25 years ago. It’s a large metal canister with a Grandma Moses scene on the outside.
A few years ago, I found a copy of an ad which offered a Free Grandma Moses Canister with the purchase of a 3-pound can of Spry. The ad is dated February 15, 1959.
I was a former P&G employee, loyal to Crisco, but I know I would have grabbed this tin with a painting by one of my favorites, Grandma Moses, if I had seen it. I always get the canister out at Christmas time, insert a can of coffee in it, and keep it on my stove close to the percolator.
