Vintage French white and blue marble pattern enamel ware canister set with sugar, coffee, chicory and pepper pots


Shipping to United States: $56.19

Vintage French white and blue marble pattern enamel ware canisters set with black lettering, and removable lids.
The pattern is sometimes called chicken wire, this version is a little less regular in the motif than usual so I would say that it is simulating marble.

This type of item would have been used throughout the Twentieth Century for storing dry goods in the French kitchen or pantry.
We usually date these items to the middle of the Twentieth Century, but the design was in use at the end of the Nineteenth Century so these pieces could well be earlier. The cans are heavy, and that, together with the condition, leads me to believe that these are late Nineteenth or early Twentieth century pieces. It is not always possible to date accurately when items are produced in the same style over a long period of time.

The canisters have a makers stamp on the base which has the indistinct lettering G O marque.

This is a set of four lidded cans, of varying size.
The sugar can with sucre label is 20 cm h and 14 cm diameter.
The cafe can is 19 cm h and 13 cm diameter.
The chicoree can is 17 cm h and 12 cm diameter.
The poivre can is 14 cm h and 8.5 cm diameter.
Price is for FOUR cans, the set of canisters

Condition is rather timeworn. The enamel is chipped and worn, where it has come away from the base tin there are areas of rust. The coffee can has a small hole at the bottom of the cyclinder, please see photos to make sure you are fully aware of the condition of these vintage items.

We are able to post out parcels from Metropolitan France and shipping fees are shown. Please allow plenty of transit time, as European post is notoriously slow!

*Please note that most deliveries within France and some other European Union countries are usually made to a Pont Relais collection point, there are usually a number of these located in shops and supermarkets in each town, and you will be given the opportunity to specify which one you prefer if this service is available for your location. Otherwise I will select the shop with the longest opening hours within your area. If you would prefer La Poste domestic delivery PLEASE ASK for a quote.
Deliveries to most other European destinations are generally to your doorstep unless it is much cheaper to use Pont Relais.
Outside of Europe we use La Poste International parcel service.
The sales tax is included in any sales so there should be nothing extra due to pay when your parcel arrives, subject to customs clearance. *The customer is responsible for any import duties incurred for an item. We will require a PHONE NUMBER to add to the customs forms, to help prevent any delays or transit problems. If you refuse delivery of an item due to customs costs, please be aware that your parcel's postage costs will be forfeit, although we are happy to refund the item purchase price upon return.

Our items are carefully selected antique and vintage pieces from France and they show the character and charm of years of use. We do not sell new or reproduction items so you can expect to find signs of the age and life that the piece has led. We believe this history adds to the story of an item. Obvious damage and faults will always be mentioned in our descriptions but minor age-related condition issues are not considered a detriment.
