Old Xi’an’s print iron biscuit bucket text/Zhang Li

Biscuits are foods for young and old. There are two ways to sell in the early years: first, the popular bulk, that is, it is distributed in the open wooden box. After the customer buys and scale, the biscuits and bandage are presented and bandaged with paper or paper bags. The second is the gift -based barrel, that is, when the factory is left, it is installed in the rectangular barrel (also flat box) of the printing iron. It has a card name, such as ×× biscuits. The flood of barrel biscuits is first in Hong Kong and Macao, and then the provinces and cities of the economic developed economy in Beijing and Tianjin, such as Shanghai Yimin Food Factory and the “Assorted Biscuits” of the Beijing First Food Factory, China Grain, Oil and Food Import and Export Company “, Xi’an appeared after about the 1980s.

Most of the iron barrels are made of horse mouth iron. The common painting (patterns) on it are landscape buildings, beasts and birds, ladies’ life stars, and auspicious words, such as Shuangxi, longevity and so on. One bucket and four sides, or four pictures are different, as four “beauty” pictures; or two pictures are opposite, both front and back, both left and right. The name and brand of food will also be marked. One is the “Chang’e biscuits” of the Xi’an Food Factory. The barrel is 22.5 cm high and the length of each side is 17.5 cm. Its picture belongs to two pictures, that is, there are two paintings. One for Chang’e ran to the moon, one is the platform of Guanghan Palace. The second is the “nutrition biscuit” produced by the same factory. The size of the iron barrel is the same as before, especially the four -sided picture. According to its text descriptions, the Great Wild Goose Pagoda, Huaqing Ponds, Bell Tower and “Museum”, the latter’s concept is blurred, as if it is the “Beilin Museum”. It is worth noting that the barrel is “Printed by Wuhu Printing Railway Manufacturing Factory”. I do n’t know if it was a factory that did not print the iron barrel at the time, or the cost of printed in the south was low, so it was for a long time, and chose to print it everywhere. This may indicate the difference in economic development at that time.

Xi’an Food Factory is located at No. 55 Xiguan South Alley. It was built in 1953. The main products are more than 300 varieties of 6 categories such as biscuits, soda, ice cream, candy, and pastry. High -quality products. I wonder if “Chang’e Biscuits” and “Nutrition Biscuits” are listed. In market competition, the factory has no longer existed, and today the citizens cannot taste the deliciousness of the past, and even do not even know the existence of the delicious manufacturers. Fortunately, there are paintings on biscuits and buckets to outline the memories of the times for us.
