Here is a charming retro set of vintage kitchen canisters by Harvell Kilgore, which fit inside a handsome bread box - convenient for shipping! They are helpfully marked in script "Bread, Coffee, Tea, Flour, Sugar". All are checked on the front in a kind of pinky beige. They saw use over 50 years, the most noticeably used one being the flour canister, which has missing paint on the right hand side, possibly where the housewife picked it up to make many a cake.

The Bread Box is is 14 inches by 10 inches by 10 1/2 inches
The Flour and Sugar tins are 5 1/2 inches by 4 inches by 9 inches
The Tea and Coffee tins are 5 1/2 inches by 4 inches by 4 inches

I have cleaned quite a bit of kitchen patina off of these, but some remains. As to the insides, I have photographed the sugar container, which is the worst offender as far as rust, there is minimal oxidation in the bread box and flour container, and none at all in the coffee and tea tins. More photos on request if desired.

What's the fifth photo? I'm including some vintage ephemera, 15 pieces in all, in case you have the urge to decoupage any of these.

Great storage units for anywhere around the house.

These ship parcel post due to size.
