'Tis the Season - I


Laub's Red Biscuit Tin with Screened "Waving Santa" (LEO Design)


This Laub's biscuit tin, made in the Fifties or Sixties, really screams Christmas.  Perfect for storing your home-baked Holiday cookies or an excellent place to keep your favorite Christmas ornaments during the off season.  Laub's was founded in Cleveland by German immigrant Jacob Laub in 1889.  In time, it became the largest independent baker in all of Ohio with 465 employees..  They ran a bakery storefront, home delivery routes, and a brisk wholesale business (to other stores, restaurants and institutions).  A box like this would have been used to present their Christmas cookies.  Today, it provides a blast of vintage Holiday cheer—and is useful at the same time.  Click on the photo above to learn more about this handsome biscuit tin.
