Set of Kitchen Canisters

A note from Geoff on Wednesday 2nd November 2005
"We have a fabulous Kitchen Dresser which has been fully restored
click here to have a look
Over the years it has slowly filled up with recycled jam and coffee jars
which have been used as canisters and spice jars!!!
It was time for some new ones, and we decided to buy the sets from
the 1950's and the 1960's - the "Retro Look"!!!
They are listed quite regularly on the Ebay Auction Site,
and below is one of the sets we bought
Sharon organised the Kitchen Dresser on Saturday 26th November 2005
and a few photos of the finished result are also below"

Kitchen Canister Set
Set of 'retro' kitchen canisters
Here I have for you a vintage set of collectable kitchen canisters
They are all in very good condition
They look great when displayed

A question I sent to the seller during the above auction
Hi, and I am enquiring if there is any sort of damage, cracks or chips, etc to this set
Thanks, Geoff
......and the reply
Hi Geoff
There is no damage, no cracks or chips
Just some little surface scratches - nothing major
I also checked under the lids and they are all perfect
The canisters are in great shape for their age
Thanks for the enquiry
