Vintage 1930s Heinz Baby Food Tin Cans with Paper Labels; Original General Store 5 oz can


Here's a great find you don't often see! Original 5-ounce tin cans with paper labels that held Heinz-brand ready to serve baby food! These pre-dated glass jars that baby food is still known for being packaged in, dating back to the 1930s. They originated at the Heinz plant in Leamington, Canada, at a plant that opened in 1908 and was in operation until 2014. Just like Gerber, Heinz has their own baby on the label and quite a variety of different baby foods too. These cans are in good shape and not rusty; all still have their original labels. Some show a little more age than others but all display well and look great among various kitchen antiques and advertising items. Each stands 2 7/8 inches high with a 2 1/4 diameter. Cans like these are scarce as most were thrown away; these particular ones were saved and repurposed to hold household hardware for decades. Pick your favorite variety or if you are the first, you can buy all 28 for a very nice discount. (contact us for shipping rate on entire collection, Etsy calculation is incorrect!) If you like to display country store items, here's a nice group!
