A gorgeous set of 5 French kitchen tin nesting canisters made in the 1920s. They are white with colorful flowers on the back and a peacock on the front. They are so beautiful with a vintage patina that imitation will never be able to reproduce.
The 5 canisters were designed to store from the largest to the smallest: Sugar, Flour, Coffee, Tea, and Pepper. A lovely and nostalgic french country decoration.
Condition: These canisters are in good vintage condition with normal sign of usage. The Sugar canister is the one that did suffer the most and has a dent in the back. This is normal as these sets were usually all piled up inside the bigger canister, when not used. The front with the peackok is also more damaged than the back with the flowers. Overall, it is a beautiful canister set that are more and more difficult to find.
Sugar Canister (largest) : 7" (18 cm) H x 4¾" (12 cm) L x 3½" (9 cm) W
Pepper Canister (smallest) : 3" (7.5 cm) H x 2" (5 cm) L x 1½" (3.5 cm) W
Total weight : 1 lb 8½ oz- 700 gr
