Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972)

Maurits Cornelis Escher (M. C. Escher)

Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) - embossed metal candy tin with sea shell and starfish design

M. C. Escher was asked by the United Tin Can Producers to design a special box to commemorate the seventy fifth anniversary of the company in 1963. The artist did not find this a very exciting challenge - decorating a chocolate box. So he thought about it and offered to design a twenty sided box, based on twelve  starfish - their five arms - covering the five junctions between five adjoining triangular sides within twelve of these sets of the icosahedron.

 The chocolate tin was produced on the occasion of the 75 year celebration of the Vereenigde Blik Fabrikanten (United Tin Can Producers), as a gift to valued costumers.
