    This set is one of the rarest, but arguably the most appealing, of all the Nylex Retro canister sets released; the set consists ofFlour, Sugar, Rice, Tea & Coffee canisters. The largest canister is 25cm tall, 16cm descend from those dimensions.  The Flour lid has a little burn damage on the underside locating rim as seen in one photo & 2 lid handles have minor fractures, which could be reinforced from the underside of the handle.


    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.
