RARE French Childs Tin Canister Set, Dish Set, Clock, Wallhanging Utensil Holder, Platters, Dishes etc.
The words on the canister set are in French. One has the turtle and the hare with the rabbit resting during the race. There is also the Giant with Jack hiding, a fox with a heron and two with a fox and crow. I can't even guess what stories those would represent. The canisters read: Farine, Sucre, Cafe, Fates and E'pices.
There are a total of 21 pieces. The unusual pieces are
1. a clock with hands that turn, 2 1/2" square.
2. a wall hanging rack for ladles or spatulas, 6 1/4" tall, 4" wide, 1 1/2" deep.
3. a trivet, 2 3/4" square
4. a small oval platter, 4 1/4" by 2 3/8", and
5. two cake or cookie serving plates. 4 3/8" diameter.
There are 5 canisters in the set, 2 1/2" tall, 1 3/4" wide, 1 1/4" deep, and 10 plates with a 3 1/8" diameter.
These probably date from the late 1800s or early 1900s and are in nice condition for the age. They are played with and there are bumps, scratches and rust spots typical of tin that would be played with over many years. The trivet and tray clearly show some of the problems.
Two canisters have something in them, one might be rice and one might be rosemary. I will leave them there if you wish or remove them if you prefer. If these are sold to someone outside the country, they will definitely be emptied.
