GCF02: Lavender Canisters
This is a beautiful vintage German miniature canister and cruet set in a lovely lavender color with opalescent wash for a rainbow of colors when turned in the light. There are 11 pieces, each with their lid or stopper, for a total of 22 pieces. These are an estate find and need to be wiped down. There are fingerprints on the surfaces. Each canister lid has a gummy or putty substance which has been applied to keep the lids from moving. All this can be removed with a wet wipe. The lavender canisters are accented with gold lettering. The Rice canister stands 3~3/4" tall and does have a small chip to the mouth of the canister. Some wear to the lavender on some of these pieces may have been when the opalescent finish was applied, as the white areas in some cases have the rainbow finish. There is a canister for Tea, Sugar, Coffee, Flour. The smaller canisters measure 2~3/8" tall and some have areas where the lavender color did not take. Most, if not all, are marked Germany. Cinnamon, Allspice, Cloves, . Oil and Vinegar cruets with lids. This is a charming set, showing very little wear. The gummy substance can be removed with a wet wipe, as can the fingerprints. A very charming color! I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues. Please contact me if you have additional questions regarding the condition of the item. Photos are considered part of the description so please email me for those!
