c1930s this is an extremely rare find. Vintage BAER'S KLONDIKE GOLD PAINT LEAF tin quite unique and special to own. The original owners were quite the antique collectors as well as artisans themselves. This is the original tin - in 2 sections. This was meant to gild picture frames, accessories and the like with gold dust. The tin reads: OPEN HERE BAER'S KLONDIKE GOLD PAINT THE LIQUID GOLD LEAVE IMMEDIATELY GILDS ANY SURFACE IT TOUCHES --------------- BAER BROTHERS - NEW YORK The graphics show a couple of grizzly bears in the process of gliding a radiator and a picture frame. Although the label is dark and has a bit of the paint on it, the warnings and directions are quite readable. The lacquer in the bottom portion has dried up. But the top contains a nice amount of gold dust. The top was not always filled with the dust, so it's hard to determine how much was in there to begin with. The back claims that this would make one quarter pint - more than enough for tons of projects. The tin measures 3 inches high by 2-1/2 inches in diameter.
