Annie Oakley Lunch Box

Description (Brief)
This tin lunch box was made by Aladdin in 1965. It has a metal snap for a hinged lid and a collapsible, blue plastic handle. The box features an image of Annie Oakley firing her revolver while riding a bucking horse on the lid and back. Drawings of a gun belt with ammunition are depicted on the sides. Annie Oakley was known as the surest shot in the Wild West, and toured with Buffalo Bill, and this television show fictionalized her life with her brother, Tagg.
