Souvenir Friday- Candy Palace Candy Box

One of the nicest and unusually designed candy boxes is this one pound container. Designed to simulate one of the towers of Sleeping Beauty Castle with the added design of Tinkerbell. The roof comes off to allow access to the candy. The opposite side has the same graphic and the other sides are simulated brick work. Printed by one of the major souvenir book and postcard companies of the time H.S. Crocker Company. The box is approximately 12 inches in height. It makes a great display piece.

The style of painting (for the castle) definitely has that crisp Eyvind Earle influence that you see so much from the 50's and early 60's.

It's amazing that they actually give the artist credit on the box!
