Ocean liner Amerika as gigantic and quite magnificent figural biscuit tin. Made by Weduwe Beckers in the Netherlands. This particular boat is normally seen with the name "Holland", and this rare export example is seldom seen. Made at the height and popularity of Trans-Atlantic sea travel, this impressive and beautifully lithographed tinplate item is 100% all original in every detail. After the biscuit contents were consumed from the enormous hull interior, the tin container became a pull-along wheeled toy to be enjoyed by children. It is however missing the masts and the two flags.
