Vintage kitchenalia

There is something about vintage kitchenalia which so epitomises an era.

Containers, tins and canisters in the distinctive 1940s Worcester Ware designs have almost become museum pieces (think Beamish Open Air Museum in Country Durham) but they can add a fabulously evocative look to today’s kitchens too.

Can’t quite put my finger on why the colours and designs are so comforting and familiar?

Add a crochet squares blanket and a proggy mat and that Make Do and Mend vibe is very strong.

Whatever you use them for (how many would be relegated to Dad’s shed for nails and screws when they got a bit tatty?!)  they are so functional.  Many people use them for keeping sewing or knitting items in – they make great button boxes!

They also work so well as a collection – with different sizes and designs.  Here we have a number of tins from the red and floral range and a lovely crinoline lady design which was so popular in its time.

You can source items on line or at vintage fairs – not really expensive to collect but create a look which is so appealing.
