Georges Briard Canisters

I love vintage kitchenwares, so when I found these Georges Briard canisters, I was excited. I loved the way they look, they are in good condition, and I have been drawn to canisters lately. Don't know why.

However, there were only two of set on the shelves of my local thrift store. Believe me, I looked and looked hoping there were more somewhere in the store. And went back the next day, just in case they were put on the shelves later. (They weren't.) From what I can find online, it looks like these came in a set of four. This set is missing it's coffee and tea canisters.

Guess I will have to keep my eyes open to find the other ones. That's part of the fun of thrifting!

When these came home with me, the name "Georges Briard" was not familiar. Now it is. To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of many of his designs that I can find online.

These will be joining my small but growing collection of canisters.
