    That was a very wise decision to rescue this as it’s such a beautiful and unusual tin, in fact too good to be Kitsch. The flamingos would have to have big red lips or long eyelashes to make it a little trashier. Not that I’d pass this up if I had a chance to rescue it too. Just beautiful. And so great that the top and what looks like a bakolite pull is still on it.

    Yes the top is bakelite. Of course the lips and eyelashes would definately give it pizazz.
    I think my friend threw away more kitschy stuff before I got there, but I will see if she still has anything stashed away:-)

      Yes, absolutely see if she has more stuff stashed away. That’s one of the great things about collecting kitsch. So many people just think of it as old junk that they’re relieved when you haul it away. You end up with a treasure trove of finds, they end up with a clean house and everyone is happy.

    don’t let her try to throw anything else away!!! if she gets rid of stuff of this quality, you’d better watch out!!!
