COLLECTION #26: Vintage Tin Canisters

I just love these fun kitchen canisters from the 40s and 50s.  Most of them have have a fruity theme, and they just make me smile! I do have a lot of vintage kitchen stuff... and much of it is in these cheerful colors: reds, creams, greens...

My favorite is the one with the cherries, and the cute little pull attached to the top. It reminds me of the drawer pulls in my own Grandma's kitchen.


I have a modern version of kitchen canisters designed by Martha Stewart, mad out of ceramic. But as cute as they are, they can't compare to the original design inspiration!

Well, you got me with this one for sure....I love containers. I have bought things just for the tin...ok, the cinnamon cookies in the tins with bears on, from Bullocks, were not JUST for the tins. The herbal teas, yes.....tasted like something I should have given to the horses. My grandmother always had tins for us, for our pennies (back when you could get two Chiclets for a cent)....they were the most fantastic tea cannisters. I have one, a Chinese cloisonne tin with a tight fighting lid. I'll see if I can get a picture tomorrow.
