vintage French enamelware canister, chipped enamel café, white with red stripes, gold pin stripes
- - - - - - - -
Although this sweet French enamelware storage tin is badly chipped in front, pretty much obliterating the "Café" lettering, it's still a functional and decorative piece!

It's a traditional white enamel tin with a triple red band on the lid and across the top of the canister along with gold pin striping. Some of the gold has worn away with use but there's still a fair amount that's bright and shiny!

Besides the obvious large chips on the front, there is additional damage (large chip) on the back and inside, along with smaller spots along the rim of the canister and lid as well as inside (please see photos). Some of those spots have started to rust but as long as you don't store food, it's still perfectly functional (I use ours to store our pet medication and insulin needles)

Size: almost 7" tall (including knob), 4.625" diameter
watertight

The other small canister (Poivre) shown in the last photo are available here:
