A can (from Central Dutch "can" for "container to carry", "drawer", "suitcase"; used in Germany since the 17th century) is originally a small, usually square, round or oval container with a lid. Until the 19th century, tins were richly decorated luxury items, which were also given in the form of portrait tins as ceremonial and honorary gifts. If they were not just exhibits, they served to store particularly valuable goods or medicines.
