Vintage Lourdes Tin

I have a thing about vintage tins, I love them, I can't ever resist them when I see them, doesn't matter whether I see them in France or in England. There is something about the images, the bits of rust, the little scratches and dents which just speak of a long working life and set my imagination on fire. Of course you get tins for just about everything and displaying so many gorgeous images, but it isn't often that one finds a tin with a religious motif.

I had never seen a tin like this, showing a scene of Lourdes. I think this is rather special and deserves to go to a person who would perhaps appreciate a little something from this place which is so dear to so many.
