Tall vintage tin with images of balloons and zeppelins

  • Manufacturer: unknown
  • Manufacture date: 1950

Tin with beautiful images of zeppelins, airships, hot air balloons from the old aviation

This high tin drum is quite unique and has a great collector's value, so it can rightly be called a collector's item. The high cylindrical tin is fitted with a sturdy, loose inclusion lid. The decoration of the tin consists of a creamy white clouded background with a number of beautiful multi-coloured images of hot air balloons and blimps from the early aviation of the late 18th century.

The tin has a seamed longitudinal seam at the back, a rolled edge at the bottom and top and a clean gold-coloured inside.

This tin is in a neat vintage condition with normal traces of use and age-related traces of wear. Photos are part of the description.

Air balloon
A hot air balloon or balloon is an aircraft in which a basket, which can accommodate the passengers, takes off, suspended from a balloon ('envelope') that is lighter than air. The whole is propelled by the wind. The horizontal movement of the hot air balloon depends on the wind direction, only the vertical (rising and descending) and a turning movement (rotating) can be influenced by the balloonist.

Zeppelin or airship
A zeppelin is a rigid, cigar-shaped airship consisting of a lightweight (aluminium) skeleton containing pockets filled with a light gas. It is named after the great pioneer of the airship, Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin.

The characteristic of a zeppelin is that the casing is rigid. The shape is therefore not dependent on the gas pressure in the carrier cells. In practice, slack airships are generally referred to as blimps. Even small cable balloons that are shaped like an airship are often referred to as blimps.
