We have a set of three EXTREMELY RARE tin (not enamel) canisters featuring the'Lotus' pattern. Whilst the canisters were not made by Cathrineholm themselves, they were outsourced to a partner in Japan who produced both the canisters and spice canister pieces on behalf of the company. All are in great vintage condition but do absolutely show signs of wear.
The smallest size has a small dent near the base but minimal scratches otherwise. The medium size has the least wear with very minimal scratches or otherwise. The largest size has some scratches to the side in a couple of places.
I've captured most of this via the pictures attached. All wooden lids and rubber seals are intact.
No rubber seals are "hardened" so they're still soft and all seal very well. The bases are show signs of wear in the paint, but are in generally good condition. Internally, they're also in very good condition. The largest has JAPAN on the base of the canister, whilst the others do not. All lids have JAPAN on the underside of the wooden lid.Approx dimensions (with lids on, height x diameter). Large: 20cm x 15.5cm. Smallest: 10cm x 10.5cm.
