Rusk bus from Verkade with East Indian cherry.

This bus from Verkade is perhaps one of the most famous rusk buses. Verkade was a real pioneer in the field of packaging design and advertising. In 1932 he had a new design made for a storage bus for rusks by his own advertising employee Cees Dekker. That became this yellow rusk bus with the motif of the stylized East Indian cherry. The entire can is finished with a diamond motif.

In a vintage state with some user traces.



Creator: Koninklijke Verkadefabrieken N.V.
Manufacture date: 1950s / 1960s
Round high rusk bush with loose slightly rolled overcloth cover. Decorated with a yellowed surface with green bottom edge. In the length regularly divided six vertical tendrils of the East Indian cherry with green leaves and red flowers. The lid is adorned with a circle of flowers or wreath of the East Indian cherry. Text: (on bottom): Verkade's factories Zaandam.

Height: 21 cm.
Diameter: 10 cm.
The East Indian cherry (Tropaeolum majus) is an annual, crawling and sometimes climbing herbaceous plant from the family Tropaeolaceae.

The smooth, grey-green leaves recall a coat of arms. This contributed to the naming, because the botanical name Tropaeolum is derived from the Latin word "tropaeum", which referred to a tree with weapons as a sign of victory.

Flowers, leaves and seeds are edible and with their sharp taste are reminiscent of horseradish. The East Indian cherry is also included in the spices. The leaves can be salted and the flower buds and green fruits can be marinated.

Henk was great to work with. When things are delivered from Sweden during a pandemic, it takes a minute ... who knew?! Henk was great about fielding my questions before and after purchasing! My pouf is beautiful, and in mint condition! I love it, and my experience with the seller was definitely a positive one!

After waiting a little over a month for shipping to the Pacific Northwest from the Netherlands, I was pleasantly surprised to see that this light fixture made it safely! Henk packaged everything very well - the box looked pretty beat up but everything survived with no damage. There were some more significant markings on the light than what I would consider "regular wear" that were not shown in the photos. It would have been nice if those were shown in the listing. Overall, I am happy with my purchase and am excited to get this light cleaned up and installed!
