Vintage Pink Lustre Ware Porcelain Canisters

Made in Germany

Item Number C36410

Every piece in the fun set of vintage German pink lustre ware cannisters tells a story...from the missing lids to the worn writing on the "Tea" box.  Most are in excellent condition...Oatmeal, Rice, Coffee and Tea are just about perfect with surface wear to the gold color. Nutmeg and Ginger are also perfect.  Sugar has a hairline crack in the bottom and Barley has a hairline crack on the side.  Vinegar's lid has a chip, shown below.  Cinnamon and Pepper are both missing their lid and each has a small hairline crack.

I use pieces like this in my own kitchen...a sugar box holds sugar (of course!) and a Barley box hold my wooden spoons.  Little spice boxes hold labels and tiny chip-clips.  I thought I would share my delight in these simple treasures with you.  These pieces are sold separately because the set is incomplete.  But if you want them all, I've listed a price for that, too.  c.1940's
