Italian Tin Signs
(1000 items available)
Exploring the world of chromolithographed tin boxes – usually decorated for advertising purposes – is like taking a journey to a different time and place, where even simple, everyday objects were adorned with endless variety, imagination and creativity. This publication traces the history of this humble, fascinating object in Italy from its origins through its heyday, surveying a selection of more than 500 boxes produced between the late 19th century and the early postwar period.
