French Bonbon Tin

The fox already has the crow's cheese in his mouth on the cover of this bonbon tin. The cover represents an expanded version of a circular card I have, also from Surfins. It is on display with two other Surfin cards; click here to see it. About half an inch is cut from the circumference of this illustration to make that one. This tin is in fair to good condition.
