(5a) Lindsey’s Quality Water Colors – Manufactured by the Glenn Tint & Chem. Co., in Glenside, PA (NO. 25 – 8 Colors). The print on the tin is very colorful (and the price imprinted on the the lid is 39¢). The patent date is December 8, 1931. I tried to find the the original patent but there are 1,142 listed on that date (need an intern).
