FOR SALE ☞ Kittles Mayfield Tobacco Tin Built in Ashtray -- Comes with original contents 1920's Rock City Tobacco
DESCRIPTION ☞ A unique tobacco tin made by the Rock City Tobacco Company in Quebec Canada. This company was founded in 1899 and would later go on to be bought out in 1938 by the Carreras company who would introduce the popular products at the time, Craven A and Black Cat cigarettes.
The Rock City Tobacco Company was renowned for making interesting, colorful tins throughout the its tenure. This tin is no exception. It is a chocolate brown color with Mayfield written on the body of the tin. The lid also doubles as an ashtray and has a Jester and Monk with the words Crox Kittles Mayfield written on. The very best part about this unique tin is that it still has most of its original contents as well as wax paper divider. While the tobacco is from the 1920's it still has a faint sweet aroma, though we would not suggest it is smoke-able. It more so adds to the uniqueness of this piece.
DIMENSIONS ☞ Approx: H 3 inch L 6 inch
CONDITION ☞ This tin is in decent shape for its age. It does have some signs of rubbing and a some slight crazing on the lid. It has managed to survive with noticeable dents or damage. There is some slight glue residue on the bottom of the tin where the government tax sticker was once applied. There is a small piece of the sticker still remaining.
