Collecting: Vintage Tea and Coffee Tins

Photography by: Bryan Gardner

Vintage tea and coffee tins make stylish and inexpensive vessels for organizing. We like to use them to corral assorted teas, desk supplies, and cards. The tins are available in a wide range of shapes and colors, and come from all over the world. (The green tin is from a New York City tea distributor prominent in the early 1900s; the yellow box is from Ogo Kaffeerösterei, a German coffee company established in 1928.)
