Since its establishment in 1851 Singer has been known as the “go to company” for the sensational sewing machine.
Over the years items bearing the Singer name have become very collectible.
My first find of the week (published last week) was a black Singer Sewing Tin Box with touches of rainbow shading. It was retired from my main page yesterday and replaced with my latest find but can still be found on this site under Find of the Week. I wanted to jump into the history behind this piece so here we go…
According to the sticker found on the bottom on the tin it was made by The Tin Box Company who specializes in unique tinware for the home and was exclusively distributed by Tindex.
I revealed that the Tin Box Company started operations in 1952 under a different name and originally manufactured all tins in England. By 1980 it was official named The Tin Box Company and due to demand seven years later moved its operations into Hong Kong and China.
Since the bottom of my box says Made in China (Trademark of The Singer company Limited) I gather it was created after 1987. You will see similar tins to this also made by Bristol Ware. Tin Box and Bristol Ware tins were made my the same company. I have seen similar tins sell between $5-$29 online.
