6 ANTIQUE Czechoslovakia KITCHEN Cannisters FRENCH
We have here another wonderful find in this Exquisite set of Six Antique Porcelain Kitchen Cannisters with Covers.
They consist of:
Sucre – Farine – Cafe
Poivre – Epices – The
The Sucre is the Tallest of the six cannisters and stands about 9 inches tall measured to the highest portion of its cover. Its base is about 4 1/4 inches wide and its depth is about 2 1/4 inches. The other cannisters graduate down in size until the smallest one which is the Poivre. It stands about 4 inches tall measured to top of its nicely rounded handle and has a base width of about 2 inches. Its depth is about 1 inch.
These lovely Cannisters are all marked at their undersides, however it is difficult to determine the exact name of the maker. We can see however that Made in Czechoslovakia is clearly visible. Obviously they were made for the French Market.
The Design is Exquisite. It features a bounty of brightly colored Pansies in shades of Rich Burgundies, Soft Violets, Sunny Yellows with light accents of Blues all bordered with their delicately executed green Leaves. This wonderful Pansy Pattern has been placed on a background that is quite reminiscent of white tiles bordered in thin lines of black. The eye is therefore drawn down to the Black Print of the titles of each Cannister.
We see that the ‘Epices’ and ‘The’ Cannisters’ Covers are Extremely Similar but not Identical to the Covers on the first four. It is very hard to see unless you are specifically looking for it.
They are in lovely Antique Condition. We have not found any chips, cracks or repairs although there is some of the always anticipated crazing and minor age-related surface discoloration.
Just give them a gentle cleaning and they will soon grace your Kitchen Display area bringing you much pleasure and a continuous flow of compliments.
What a truly Beautiful acquisition to your beautiful Czech Porcelain or Antique Kitchen Collectibles Collection this will surely make!
How nice to have this for yourself – or – as a treasured and well-appreciated gift for the Holidays and throughout the year for that very special person in your life!
