TOWLE’S LOG CABIN SYRUP TIN Copyright 1914 "Boy in Doorway" Jack Towle 12-Ounce Capacity "Original Tin"
Not a reproduction tin!
Original lithographed TOWLE’S LOG CABIN SYRUP TABLE SIZE TIN, circa 1914.
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.
Measuring 3 ⅝" across by 2 ½” wide by 3 ¾” high not including neck opening, this tin is the smallest size tin designed by Towle using its iconic log cabin shape, and is one of the company’s early lithographed tins. The tin is marked Table Size with a net contents size of 12 ounces; although most of the tins this size are marked that they held 16 ounces.
It is in good condition with minimal scratches and dents and retains its bright coloring. There is a metal screw cap screwed onto the threads of the neck of the tin but it no longer screws tightly.
The tin design is "Boy in Doorway."
One side of the tin features a boy bundled up in winter clothing standing in the doorway of the log home and 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 Jack Towle are printed on the threshold. The words, "Towle’s Log Cabin Syrup Absolutely Pure" in all caps are positioned across the top of the side.
The opposite side features the Towle’s Log Cabin trademark logo with the following printed below:
The bottom of the tin reviews the directions for how to open and close the tin as well as how to pour the syrup. Both ends are plain.
