Vintage Mailing Tube with Screw Top by Improved Mailing Case Co. 8" tall (c.1920s)
Just think of all the clever uses for this vintage industrial mailing tube!
Use it in your studio or shop to hold paint brushes and drawing supplies. Put a glass in the tube, fill the glass with water and use it as a vase for your favorite fresh cut long-stem flowers. You could even use the mailing tube as a unique gift box for a special gift! The tube would also look great displayed on a shelf.
Of course, you could also use the tube to mail a special note to a friend - imagine their surprise when they get this in the mail!
At the time of this listing, we have another similar mailing case available in our shop in a slightly larger size, as shown in the last photo. Make it a set!
This mailing tube is in very good vintage condition. The tin cap, bottom, and rim shows a bit of patina. The screw cap is easy to put on and remove. The heavy-cardboard tube is a very good condition with no dents or dings, and is nicely worn. There are two holes in the tube, as shown. There are two New York stamps on the tube, one a 7 cent stamp, the other a 20 cent stamp. The bottom of the tin is embossed with "Improved Mailing Case Co, New York".
