Vintage Advertising Canister, Gordon’s Potato Chips Metal Canister, Red Truck Handle
An original vintage advertising canister for 1950’s era Gordon’s potato chip, which is very hard to come by. The red delivery truck serves as the handle on the lid and the truck reads “Gordon’s” on each side. Directions for use are printed on the inside of the can. The system was designed to keep the chips fresher longer, whether it worked or not, is another thing.
The height of the canister without the truck is 8 1/2″ and with the truck is 10″. The base diameter measures 7″. The white painted canister is in its original state and has not been repainted. There are the expected small dings and scratches in the paint as well as some surface rust on the bottom. The lid fits tight. I have not attempted to do any cleaning of this canister but have chosen to leave it in its fabulous rustic condition. This is a rare opportunity to purchase one of these hard to find vintage advertising canisters, in its original condition. Buy it while you can!
