We haven't the slightest idea of what this tin originally held, but don't really think it matters. The scalloped pink and cream container has a wonderfully feminine feel and is obviously a perfect Valentine. Stamped on the tin's back is: Avon Valentine Day's Day - 1981. We up-cycled the vintage metal tin into a sweet lamp by mounting it on a dark oval base and topping it with a 9" bottom new fabric lamp shade. The one-of-a-kind lamp is 15" high and takes a 40watt bulb.
