Kitchen Canisters

I’ve been sick for a week or so, and feeling better, I thought it was the perfect time to go to an auction that was near my house today.

I got this lovely set of 1930s-era canisters and a cute Hall teapot for next to nothing.  There was a lot of other junk in the box too but this was what I was bidding on. =)

I don’t know anything about this pattern, but I really like it and hopefully I’ll have a good place for it some day.  If you know anything about it, please share.

    These are gorgeous. Incredibly 30/40’s looking. Is everything ceramic?

    Unbelievable that you got so many pieces of it. And equally incredible that you got a Hall teapot. Though nothing is as incredible as the fact that they didn’t realize the value of all of this and you got it for “next to nothing”.

    Glad to hear that you’re feeling better. Are you getting all the snow where you are? Hoping that at least it was a convenient time to stay inside.

      Thanks Allee! The big blizzard missed us, we only had a little snow, but it has been very cold… down in the single digits, brrr.

      The Hall teapot was $15 and the canisters (plus the 6 wine glasses, 2 vases, and assorted other junk that game with them) were $17.50. I feel like it was a pretty good deal. It’s all ceramic, except for the lid on the salt cellar which is wooden. I think it’s from the 30s. It’s all marked “made in Japan” but I haven’t been able to find anything about it on the internet or even find anything else in this pattern. I’m sure there were a lot more spice jars and probably a “Coffee” canister in the set and I’d love to find a few more pieces.

    Oh I love this!!! I am green green green right now! These are fabulous and a matching teapot to boot! I feel you got a good deal too.

    Sorry you were feeling poorly. Here in the midwest we got socked with snow and now below 0 temps. BRRR is right. I am ready for spring!

    And Allee how is the knee doing??

      Knee is really great. Has been a fairly quick recovery and pretty painless so no complaints. The real test will come this weekend though when I hadup north and go to kookykitsch’s and Meshuggah Mel’s Clean House garage sale as to say that I will be moving fast to scoop up the goods and covering God knows how much square footage would be an understatement. But I’m icing and ready to go!
