Leckerlee’s lebkuchen tins follow the longstanding tradition of lebkuchen bakers presenting their wares in custom-designed decorative metal canisters. These beautiful tins also served the practical purpose of preserving the fragrance and flavor of the spiced treats. They were often purchased as seasonal gifts, a practice that continues today as holiday shoppers await lebkuchen producers’ new annual tin designs to give to friends and family. Leckerlee’s tins are an homage to vintage lebkuchen tins dating as far back as the late 19th century and spanning various artistic movements in history. Many vintage lebkuchen tins have become collectors’ items today, and much like their historic counterparts, Leckerlee’s tins are intended to be kept in the household long after the lebkuchen inside is eaten.
