Antique French Hand Painted Black Tole Canister with Griffins, so charming! Large size, masterfully painted by hand with two griffins. Decorative, and in wonderful condition, this will look amazing in your home, anywhere you want to display it.
I am not sure who painted this, there is no signature. At one time the tin had the number "8" on the front, but an artist painted over it with the current design. If only this piece could talk! So we could find out why it was painted and for who. The lid fits well, the painting is well preserved, this makes a statement.
