Lithographed tins

Yesterday we purchased "Simpkins Mixed Fruit Travel Sweets" which are sold in a beautiful, round metal container carrying excellent graphics from another mindset. We normally suck on Altoids, but filled their empty tin with Simpkins instead.

We store our various dry biscuits, crackers, etc in a beautiful old shortbread container with no brand id whatsoever. It originally contained Scottish shortbread and features a depiction from the Romantic Period.

To the best of my knowledge the last metal lithographer in Canada was a firm in Woodstock, Ontario and I recall it closing several years ago

It seems that only quality Euro products still do metal, and do it well enough to make us want to hold onto the container.

My question is, "Are any North American food products still offered in decorative metal containers?" If so, what are your favourites.
