My Things, Bremke's Kaffeedose

My Things, Bremke's Kaffeedose by Liza Hirst

oil on canvas panel - Öl auf Malplatte - huile sur carton entoilé
15 cm x 15 cm / 5,9" x 5,9"

This beautiful tin must be about 100 years old. When you look carefully you will see that at the top it has writing on it in the old former German style, which I can't even decript. If it didn't have the name written in the new style on the side I would not have known, that this coffee used to be produced by the company "Bremke".
