German Ceramic Kitchen Canisters

I'm back with another one of my "finds" from my thrifting adventures this past weekend. I spotted this ancient-looking set of ceramic kitchen canisters tucked away in a basement corner of my favorite shop.

There are 13 containers total: six large canisters for flour, sugar, cereal, rice, coffee and tea; and six small spice jars for cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper, ginger and allspice. Lucky number 13 (the oddball of the group) is the salt box. I realize that it's hard to tell sizes here, but the large canisters are about 8" tall, the spice jars are about 3", and the salt box is around 5".

I was initially attracted to their vintage vibe, and the blue triangle-y (I promise that's a word) border around the lettering. I flipped one of the canisters over to see if there was any manufacturer marking on the bottom, and sure enough, it was marked "Staffel Germany" Dec. 1818.

When I saw the 1818 stamp, I thought - are these really that old? As I started researching, it appears that these ceramic jars were stamped with the month and lot number during production. So I don't think the 1818 refers the year. From what I can tell, these jars were produced sometime between 1900 and 1940 according to Google, Ebay and Etsy (thanks guys!).

Overall, they're in pretty good shape for their age. There are definitely some chips and cracks - especially around the lids, but they'd make a great addition to anybody's kitchen. They'd be charming displayed as a group and super useful for storage.

I'll be adding these to my Etsy shop in the next few days, so consider this a sneak peak at some new additions to the shop. (Yay!) If you're interested in them, let me know and I'll save 'em for you.

Have a great day!
