This is a very rare set of Peach and GoldLustreware made in Germany around 1900. It is even more stunning in person. According to an expert, these types of sets, variations were made for about 50 years and used primarily because small packages of dry goods were not available until into the 1900s. It was inconvenient to open a 50lb bag of flour whenever a cup was needed, so small amounts were stored on a kitchen shelf or in a cabinet. Set includes the following: 5 Large cannisters are 8 tall: Tea, Oatmeal, Sugar, Coffee, Rice. 2 Decanters are 9 tall: Oil, Vinegar. 6 Small cannisters are 4 3/4 tall: Nutmeg, Cloves, Allspice, Ginger, Pepper, Cinnamon. Salt is 6 3/4 tall. Set is missing one large container, probably flour. Extra lid (cracked) is included. Vinegar decanter has a small bubble defect that does not penetrate the container. Some of the paint on the Sugar container looks faded. The item “VINTAGE ANTIQUE GERMAN LUSTREWARE PEACH WITH GOLD 14 PIECE CANISTER SET GERMANY” is in sale since Tuesday, July 3, 2018.
