Arabia's Chief Coffee Bin, Ridenour Bakery, Kansas City, MO. Ca. 1900

This is a very colorful tin general store counter coffee bin from the Ridenour Bakery Company in Kansas City, Missouri.  This bin held 50 pounds of bulk coffee, and was designed to allow consumers to simply scoop out the amount of coffee they needed each time.   The Arabia’s Chief brand always featured an Arabic man on a horse in their advertising.
