"The Taste of History: Koopmans Cake Mix Tin from the 1990s"

  • Manufacturer: Koopmans Royal Flour Mills
  • Manufacturing Date: 1990s

Product Description:
Enjoy the nostalgic charm of this rectangular tin drum for Koopmans cake mix, a valuable piece of history from the 1990s. Made by the renowned Koopmans Royal Flour Mills, whose baking tradition dates back to 1846, this tin exudes an atmosphere of craftsmanship and homeliness.

The tin features a removable hinged lid. The decoration is lively, with a warm brown background that also graces the lid. The proud brand name 'Koopmans' and the year 'anno 1846' are displayed in yellow on the tin.

What makes this tin truly special are the four sides, each framed with a refined orange mat. Here, two enchanting scenes unfold where cake and apple pie take centre stage. On one side, an idyllic picnic in a cornfield is depicted with a charming windmill in the background. A man and a woman enjoy a piece of apple pie, while a blanket with a bread basket completes the scene. The other side shows a cosy scene at the dining table, where a man and a woman prepare a delightful cup of tea with a homemade Koopmans cake.

The tin, with its crackle-like finish, is in excellent condition, with only subtle signs of use and age-related wear contributing to its authentic character. The attached photos are an integral part of this vivid description.

The tin has a height of 17.5 cm, a length of 12.3 cm, and a width of 8.3 cm.

Immerse yourself in the rich history of Koopmans Royal Flour Mills, founded in 1846 by Uilke Klazes Koopmans. This flour mill, starting with a horse mill in Holwerd, grew into a thriving business that imported wheat from America and the Baltic States. In 1881, Jan Koopmans took over the company, and subsequent generations, including the brothers Uco, Daan, and Jo Koopmans, diversified and established a consumer division with delicious pancake mixes.

This tin is not just a piece of kitchenware; it is a timeless embodiment of craftsmanship and traditional baking pleasure. Add this unique piece of history to your tin collection and let the warm, nostalgic atmosphere of Koopmans enrich your kitchen.
