Vintage set of four metal embossed floral canisters made in Holland. These are a familiar and highly collectible pattern. I have had several sets of these over the past year, but this is the first complete square set with this pattern that I have seen. This set consists of four square canisters with hinged tops. These are older and have seen their share of use.

The pattern is embossed into the metal and covered with a gorgeous turquoise and pink floral lithograph. Each canister has its share of wear. They are by no means perfect or mint, but they have that super cottage/shabby chic appeal. The largest of the canisters has a few dents and some lithograph wear, as they all do, but what is fabulous about this pattern is it is so busy you do not see where the wear of the lithograph is unless you are looking for it.

The second to the largest (shown in picture 4) has a broken hinge, but the top fits the canister and this has no bearing on its use or display appeal. The two smaller of the canisters are a bit faded around the pink edging (there is a pink band on each canister, if you look at picture one, you can see what I am trying to explain), and is only mentioned for accuracy. The insides show no rust and are clean, but are not uniformly gold (looks as though it has been washed off). There is a bit of rusting on each around the seams of the canisters. The second to largest has some rusting around the lid (please feel free to ask for pictures of this, I felt it not bad enough to show a picture of it, but have many if you would like to see it), has what appears to be drop of epoxy or the like that does not wash off (see picture three for this.)

All in all this set is fabulous for display and storage of non-food items. These would be perfectly at home on a baker's rack, open shelf or on a fireplace mantle. They are truly the basis of Shabby Chic decor, especially in the shape they are in as they have just enough of that "chippy used look." I would consider these in good vintage.

Please feel free to contact me with any and all questions or to request more pictures as I have taken pics of every detail mentioned above and more.
