The invention relates to a paint container system comprising a bucket-shaped, (3) closed container (2) closed at one side by a bottom having a completely peripheral side wall (4). Said container has a reusable lid (5) in order to close the container (2) in addition to at least one label-shaped information carrier (15). In order to improve upon a paint container known in prior art, a first opening of said container can be recognized from the outside. Unintentional lifting of the lid is also prevented and an unimpeded and reliable optical checking of the contents of the container is made possible without the container having to be opened. According to the invention, the surrounding side-wall (4) according to the invention has a tightly closing functional edge (7) at the lid side which closes with said lid (5) and is provided with at least one authenticity seal (8) which closes a recessed grip area (9) provided in order to lift said lid (5). The information carrier (15) and at least the side wall (4) are at least partially constructed from transparent material.
