This set consists of Flour, Sugar, Rice, Tea & Coffee canisters. The largest canister is 25cm tall, 16cm deep, 11cm wide; the others descend from those dimensions. This set is in excellent condition and probably the best we've had over the years.
This set is probably the rarest, but also the most appealing, of all the Nylex Retro canister sets released. Many collectors go head-over-heels about these canisters! The graphics are very Retro Kitsch. On the largest 'Flour' canister there is a farmer in overalls with his pitch-fork, then a girl in a saucy skirt and top holding sugar cane on the 'Sugar' canister. On the 'Rice' canister an Oriental man wearing a coolie hat and holding chopsticks, then a woman wearing a sarong and carrying a basket of tea on her head on the 'Tea' canister and finally, a South American man and his donkey on the 'Coffee' canister. The colour schemes are picked up in the lids & the stylized lettering really complements their style.
