Back to my little series on collections…and remaining in the tea theme, allow me to showcase my tea tins. Here they are stacked haphazardly in the cupboard. Shame to hide them away but one can only have so many things on display. As you can see one has to practical sometimes, and thus i have labelled them on the outside, though not aesthetically pleasing, pretty necessary in a busy tea-fuelled household.
Lets have some close ups. The easiest ones to find are the chinese style black and red tins, some older than others. Others have all manner of scenes and styles, check out the gold and turquoise number in the background! Very kitsch.
I recently came across these Jacksons of Piccadilly vintage tins. Definitely too pretty to actually use. I am currently bidding on a nice red version on ebay – wonder how many others there are out there to find?!
