I “Daher” You!

I “dare” you to find a “Daher” designed tin! Actually it’s not much of a dare, because you might already have one. Daher-designed tin cans, bowls, plates and platters have become quite collectible. They are easy to find in antique stores, vintage shops, and on Etsy and Ebay.

The designs are bright and bold….

Elegantly delicate….

Or sweet and nostalgic….

You’ll know you have a Daher by turning it over. The smaller tins usually have an embossed mark like this….

Note this tin held candies sold at Disney World.

And the bowls and plates have a printed mark like this….

The tins pictured in this post are a few of the Daher designed tins that I have in my booth right now. If you want to know more about Daher, click here and here.

Do you “Daher”???

I’m linking to the following parties:

  9. Thank you for the education, I am sure I have seen them before, but passed them up, I am going to have my eyes open now


  10. I have a couple of these but didn't know what they were - just liked the patterns and colors,. Thanks for letting me know what they are.


  11. These are just beautiful. I love tins that are truly lovely. I have one Daher plate that I just love. It sits on my dresser holding odds and ends. Thanks for sharing your Daher collection and for the education at TTF this week!

  12. I love Daher tins. Their design were so wonderful! Great for VTT!

  13. Love your tins! AND "YES" I do Daher! as a matter of fact I HAVE your blue tin with the flowers. When I first got married I collected these BIG TIME! I used to keep all my kitchen gadgets in them. I "TRY" not to let them follow me home any more, BUT every once in a while "One JUMPS RIGHT INTO my car"!
    I still love them,
    Have a wonderful weekend,
    Big Hugs,

  14. I have a tin that was my Grandma's and I keep tea in it...I will have to check I think it is one!? Thanks for teaching me something..I love to learn.

  15. I love those tins! Thanx for sharing at THT!

  16. The Daher tins are so pretty!! New follower to your blog :)

  17. These are so pretty, Sherry! I always appreciate the inspiration you share at Potpourri Friday!

  18. Sherry, after reading your post I went to check and found five trays and four bowls. This was without getting the ladder back out to check the boxes on top of my bookcases, so probably my total is somewhere in the whole big bunch range. My favorite is one enormous one, much bigger than all the rest.

  19. Hi! Found your post informative as I was searching to find out more information about Daher tins. I have bought 4 of these from 2 different Estate Sales. I am still trying to find out the age of the tins. Does Daher have a website?

    1. I wish I could help you more with your research. I don't know the age nor do I know if Daher has a website.


Your comments make me smile....!!!
