VRP004 - White Tin Box With Hearts & Flowers

About this vintage recipe box:

Measures approximately 5 1/4″ across, 3 3/4″ high & 3″ wide.

This vintage recipe box has the prettiest floral design.

It looks Scandinavian/Dutch. The box itself is a sturdy tin with a hinged lid.

Under the label, the tin is embossed with the Ohio Art Co. logo.

The seller shared the following information with me:

These recipes came from Shelby Ohio Richland County (Shelby, Richland County, Ohio) estate of a veterinarian we cannot remember his name we are going to ask the auctioneer that done the sale and see if he has the family’s name and when we find out we will surely let you know.

I purchased this box from a lot sale on eBay which contained 8 vintage recipe boxes made of wood and tin. Below are links to view the other vintage recipe boxes purchased within this recipe box lot.

Persons mentioned in this recipe box

Adelaide Christina OLSEN Lanker was born 20 DEC 1919 in Brooklyn, New York, and died 23 AUG 2001 in Mansfield, Richland, Ohio, USA. She must be a family friend as I haven’t found a connection to the SOWERS family to date.

I cannot find any information on Helen Hines at this time.

The box is evocative of a Norwegian rosemaling design—given the names of the friends in the box (Erik, Adelaide Olsen), my guess is the owner was of Norwegian descent.

Trying to find a recipe for what my mom and grandma called sauerkraut candy. I know coconut,brown sugar and vinegar were in it and Don'know what else. They made it in a skillet.

I also have this recipe box. It was my mother's recipe box she used all the years I was growing up. She just passed away in October of this year at 87 years young.
