Iconic French Kitchenware from the 1950's. These canisters will certainly add some French charm to your shelves.
This is a very rare and collectible canister set, consisting of five Limoges porcelain lidded storage jars.

They would look amazing displayed on a country cottage dresser or farmhouse kitchen shelf.
An Ideal gift for anyone who loves early 1900's home styling.

They all have the "LF (Limoges, France) Véritable Porcelaine" mark on the base, dating from the early 20th century.
The canisters are glazed cream/antique white and decorated with a stunning floral pattern on the upper half. The lids have gold gilding on the handles and edges. They have the French words for 'Sugar, Coffee, Tea, Pasta and Pepper' (Sucre, Café, Thé, Pâtes et Poivre) across the front.

It's very unusual to find such a complete set in excellent condition.
Considering their age, they are in remarkable condition. They have "wear" to the gilding and some edge discoloration on the inside rims (where the porcelain is unglazed) but there are no chips or cracks. The lids on the coffee and pasta canisters only just fit, whereas the lids on the other three have a slight overlap. Nothing whatsoever to detract for their beauty or functionality, it in fact adds to their authenticity and charm.
They have many years of service yet to offer.

Altogether they weigh 2.2kgs/6lbs!

The largest "Sucre" canister stands 21cms/ 8¼"tall (to the lid) and is 11cms/ 4¼" wide x 9cms /3½" deep.
The 'Café' canister stands 18cms/ 7" tall (to the lid) and is 10cms/ 4" wide x 8cms/ 3¼" deep.
The 'Pasta' canister stands 16cms/6¼" tall (to the lid) and is 9cms /3½" wide x 7cms/ 2¾" deep.
The 'Thé' canister stands 14cms/ 5½" tall (to the lid) and is 7.5cms/3" wide x 6.5cms/ 2½" deep.
The smallest 'Poivre' canister stands 12cms/ 4¾"tall (to the lid) and is 6.5cms/ 2½" wide x 5.5cms/2" deep.
