Chesty's potato chips - chest out with pride!
i love the colors and fonts of vintage tin, especially those found on old snack food containers. the colors of this tin are especially vibrant, as this tin is in excellent condition!
The Chesty Company was founded in 1943, originally in Milwaukee, WI and later moved to Terre Haute IN, the first Chesty Potato Chips were rolled out in 1945 and advertised as "The food It's fun to eat!"
I estimate that this tin is perhaps from 1985, as the top proclaims a 40th anniversary celebration. It measures 9.5 inches tall and is 8 inches in diameter.
part of a multi-tin collection that I am selling this summer, and truly in great condition with no dents, just a few scratches and a tiny bit of rust - this is on the big honking summer sale at a great price!
