Vintage Tin Box - Animated3D ModelNoAI
This tin pin box, dating to the early 1900s and has part of an English Rhyme on its surface: See a pin and pick it up, All the day you’ll have good luck; See a pin and let it lay, Bad luck you’ll have all the day!
The word penny is also interchanged with pin in this nursery rhyme, with the connotation of a need for thriftiness. The little box was part of a sewing kit that is in the Moseley Homestead Collections- a National Register of Historic Places site in Brandon, Florida. The Moseley family were pioneers to the area, and this momento was likely a gifted piece, heirloomed even after it became damaged.
