Shipping to United States: $77.90

Vintage l French faience ironstone china canisters set with black lettering, and removable lids.
The pattern is hand painted in bright broad strokes of colour, a floral design of daisies reminiscent of Quimper in both style and colour.

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 these pieces could well be earlier. It is not always possible to date accurately when items are produced in the same style over a long period of time.

This is a set of four lidded canisters, of varying size.
The largest pot is the sugar jar with sucre label, this is approx 21cm h and 12cm by 14cm at the lid.
The smallest pot for tea is approx 14cm high, and the lid is 10 by 8.5cm.

Price is for four vintage lidded jars, the set of canisters.
Condition is very good, I have only found one very small nibble to the glaze at the base of the little tea jar. There are a few other minor nibbles and blemishes, and rough glaze but nothing else substantial. Please see photos for condition before you commit to purchase.

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.
