Vintage typewriter ribbon tins - for packaging typewriter key cufflink sets

Price ($AUD): $29.00


Choose one from any of these beautiful tins as a unique and creative way of packaging and presenting a set of typewriter key cufflinks (see my other listings for custom-made cufflinks).
These are all genuine vintage tins that were originally used for the sale of typewriter ribbon spools in the mid 1900s, so these tins are approximately 60-100yrs old, and their graphic designs are simply amazing.

The tins are approx 50mm (2") in diameter.

Price is $29 per tin - choose from either round tins or square tins in a wide range of colours and styles (all sets are labelled with individual code numbers). Let me know which tin(s) you'd prefer by sending me a message when purchasing, thanks.

If you're after a custom set of typewriter-key cufflinks to go inside your tin, please see the listing here: https://www.madeit.com.au/Main/Item?itemId=900057

If purchased for cufflink packaging, I handcraft an insert (made from leather overlaid on a corrugated cardboard base) customised to each tin.

If you would just like the tin (for any other purpose), please let me know that you won't need a cufflink insert. These tins are useful for storing small items like paperclips or lovely just as a decorative item :)

Postage costs vary depending on the depth of the tin. Prices quoted in the listing are for tins over 20mm deep when packaged, but some tins are slimmer and if they are less than 20mm deep when packaged, shipping costs are generally halved. If shipping is less than the quoted amounts here, I will refund the difference.
