Canadian box and retail stamp

Hi all.

I don’t have anything earth shattering to report this time around but I thought I would share a couple of things I found over the last week of “research.”

First, I found a Tall Lane box online that was “presented by” a Canadian retailer.  Here is photo of the interior of the box…

This is the American version of the same logo from a Tall box…

Second, I also found a box online where the retailer is both branded (by Lane) and stamped in the lid.  This is the first time I have seen both.  This stamp includes the old-timey phone number.  See below…


This was also found in a Tall box.

Well, like I said, nothing horribly exciting but I keep plugging away….

I am working on a time line of box styles and logos and am trying to figure out how to report my findings to you without making it too confusing.  Wish me luck.

Merry Christmas if I don’t get another posting out.
