Holy smoke II

Cookie tin from the mid-1960's when crown princess Margrethe and count (?) Henri got engaged to be married (1967). Yours truly is the happy owner of this tin which is actually the crown piece in my growing collection of retro tins. I just cannot help to take pride in possessing a tin which was one full of buttery cookies with sugar coating. I guess a woman with pointy glasses and a colourful but still neat skirt consumed the cookies while consuming every detail from the wedding from the glittery magazines. What ever the story is, I will keep the tin close to my heart for as long as I can.
