These three vintage nesting tins feature a spring floral / asian motif. They were made in Hong Kong. I love these tins - they perform doubly as decoration and storage, and they're attractive to boot! Nesting tins are particularly handy for storing flour, sugar, spices, and tea; bathroom accessories (rubber bands, q-tips); personal items (makeup; tampons); and office supplies (tape, scissors, stamps, pencils). The only limits on their utility are in your imagination!

The tins are muted gold (with a tan / chartreuse tin). The asian pattern consists of large white floral blooms set against a background of green foliage; a hummingbird alights on one of the branches above which are three rows of black japanese kanji.

The tins are in excellent vintage condition. The largest tin has a dent on the lid (see photos) that can easily be repaired (i.e., with a rubber mallet). The medium and small tins are in excellent condition. The set bears minor scuffs and scratches due to years of use, but there are no major flaws and no rust.

The largest tin measures 6 inches tall with lid; 5.5 inches tall without the lid.
The medium tin measures 5 inches tall with lid; 4.5 inches without.
The smallest tin measures 4 inches tall with the lid; 3.5 inches tall without.
