Holy cow! As usual, only two very desirous bidders escalated this beyond a sustainable level of ~$175.
I've always liked this understated tin container. As you know, these are generally beaten to hell and back, but this one looks to be in very collectible condition, no doubt the reason it garnered so many dollars. It is a very soothing scene. Some collectors feel this is from the early 1950s, but I feel it is from the 1930s.
