Vintage 1920s 30s French Canister Set Lustre Porcelain 10 pieces Excellent


Brand Etsy

This is a wonderful vintage porcelain canister set that is in excellent condition - it looks unused. The set is made with a striking lustre glaze with French content text in gold. Each is decorated with bands featuring windmills and roses. There are four small canisters, an oil cruet and five larger canisters. The four small canisters are labeled Gingembre (Ginger) Muscade (Nutmeg), Clou de Girofle (Clove) and Canelle (Cinnamon). The larger canisters are labeled Caf (Coffee), Th (Tea), Riz (Rice), Orge (Barley) and Farine (Flour). The Oil cruet is labeled Huile. Judging by the style of the canisters, I believe that these date to the 1930s, but might be a little earlier . Each of the larger canisters measures 7 1/2 in height including its lid and 6 1/8 without the lid and measures 4 1/4 square. The smaller canisters measures 4 3/4 in height with the lid and 3 1/2 without the lid and measures 2 5/8 square. The oil cruet measures 9 in height, including its stopper. As mentioned, the canisters are in amazing condition, look like they saw no use and were well stored over the last 90 or so years. Despite having windmills on them, I think that they are either of Czech or German origin - they are unmarked.
This is a wonderful set, unusual to find in this condition. Due to fragility, this set will be well protected in an oversized box, which, of course, adds to its price, which includes shipping - I cannot ship this overseas..Fabulous set for a vintage kitchen decor!
