Lithographed TOWLE’S LOG CABIN SYRUP TIN COIN BANK from 1979. 

Grocer Patrick J. Towle introduced Towle’s Log Cabin Syrup in 1887 and named the syrup in honor of his childhood hero, Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States known for having spent his childhood living in a log cabin.

The red and brown tin is designed using Towle’s iconic log cabin shape, a shape first patented in 1897.  Initially, Towle’s tins had a paper label covering but later the tins were lithographed. This lithograph used on this tin is a reproduction of the "Boy in Doorway" label in the early part of the last century.

On one side, the tin features a boy bundled up in winter clothing standing in the doorway holding a Towle's Log Cabin Syrup Tin.  A “HOME SWEET HOME” sign hangs above the door—and the words, “FROM MY CABIN TO YOUR TABLE” are printed on the threshold.  The opposite side features a large Towle’s Log Cabin trademark.

The bottom of the tin reads:

Tin is a good vintage condition with bright graphics and has a few scuffs and scratches, primarily on the bottom of the tin.  A metal screw cap with a coin slot is screwed onto the threads of the rubber neck of the tin. The tin measures 5” across by 3 ⅛” wide by 5” high not including neck opening. It was not meant as a food container and is marked as such.
