Vintage Mid Century Large Toleware Flour Bin In Cream

vintage mid century cream toleware painted flour bin

A great large sized antique flour bin, ideal for a rustic kitchen feel, dating from the mid 20th Century.

This retro cream flour bin is a great piece of vintage kitchenalia. A toleware base, the bin has been spray finished in cream, with the typography also sprayed on to finish the piece. This paint has worn, scratched and peeled in places over the years but the bin itself is still in good order. The black Art Deco style lettering of the word ‘Flour’ is unusual and works well against the contrast of the cream. And it is a great size, suitable for holding several kilos of flour, making it the perfect piece for an avid baker. Unusuallly, this piece also has a hinged lid, which is useful when in regular use.

It is in fair condition for its age. There is some wear to the paint, most notably around rims. There are also some scratches to the surface and mild dents in places. There are also some mild patches of oxidisation, most notably on the base of the inside of the bin. However, these shouldn’t affect use of the bin if it is used with a liner.
