5 KILOGRAM ZUID AFRIKAANSCHE REPUBLIEK COMMEMORATIVE COFFEE TIN

diameter: 24cm, height: 39cm

R1 800 – R2 000

A highly decorated coffee tin which surely would keep a Boer Family supplied with that beverage for several months! Decorated with the flags and crests of the ZAR and OVS and a seated and named group painting of dignatories of the ZAR and OVS, very much in the format of ‘The Last Supper’. Numerous legends in French and Dutch extolling the qualities of Pelican Brand Coffee. The tin has age marks and discolouration with rust under base, but still very collectable. 3800
