Product Description
Introducing this set of cream-coloured vintage tin biscuit tins, specially designed for Bolletje. They are characterized by their charming red lids and the famous Bolletje logo as decoration. Manufactured by Verblifa between 1950 and 1980, these tins exude a nostalgic ambience that takes us back to times gone by.

The design of these biscuit tins has been executed with utmost care. Their slim, cylindrical shape, soft cream colour, and striking red lid with a rolled edge give these tins a timeless appearance. The iconic Bolletje logo, designed by the famous cartoonist Marten Toonder, adorns a red diamond-shaped triangle, with the cheerful baker figure holding a biscuit. This symbol of Bolletje adds an extra touch of charm to these biscuit tins.

Furthermore, the tins feature an elegant beige decorative border with wavy details and a sleek red line at the bottom, further enhancing their aesthetic appeal. The sturdy crimped seam at the back ensures durability and stability.

Bolletje B.V., formerly a Dutch family business that produced a variety of bread substitutes and pastry products, has a rich history. The story began in 1867 when Gerardus Johannes ter Beek opened a bakery in Almelo. His son Albert continued the tradition and specialized in biscuit production. In the 1920s, Albert even started delivering biscuits with his bicycle. After World War II, the five Ter Beek brothers joined forces and established an industrial bakery. It was during this period that the brand name "Bolletje" was coined, leading it to become the country's largest biscuit producer.

These tin biscuit tins represent a piece of Bolletje's history and are a valuable addition to your collection. Act quickly, as this unique set will soon welcome a new owner.

Add this beautiful vintage biscuit tin set to your collection now and enjoy the nostalgic charm that Bolletje brings with it!
