- Pattern: “America America” by Terry Redlin
- Not Vintage: 2005
- Details: This is a limited edition cookie tin and part of a collection of tins by artist Terry Redlin. The decoration is based on the much loved artist paintings, this one called “America America” and shows a snowy winter scene with a small school house in the country. The teacher and her students are raising the American flat and she is reading to them. In the background you see a horse and carriage and geese flying overhead. As with many of Terry’s paintings, this takes place at twilight, with the sun just barely coming over the horizon. It is red and gold with the Schwan’s ice cream name on the top. The sides have a beautiful pattern of swirls and pinecones or acorns. The Schwan’s name is also on the side. Great for country / farmhouse decor, or even traditional and patriotic decor. Great gift for a tin collector or someone who loves the artist.

Terry Redlin was born July 11, 1937 in Watertown, South Dakota. He was an American artist popular for painting outdoor themes and wildlife, his style is unique and he often paint his scenes in twilight, most often rural America scenes. As his work became better known, his paintings started to be seen at fundraisers and in galleries. U.S. ART magazine dubbed Terry “America’s Most Popular Artist” every year from 1991 to 1998 and inducted him into their Hall of Fame in 1992 for his use of earthy colors, blazing sunrises and sunsets, and nostalgic themes. He was quoted as saying: “America’s rural past, in my eyes, was a wonderful place full of both beauty and opportunity. How fortunate I’ve been to spend my life creating memories of those distant times for others to enjoy.” —Terry Redlin. He passed away not long ago, on April 24th, 2016.
