Each individual canister in this delightfully charming and oh-so penultimately “shabby chic”/”farmhouse rustic” kitchenware set is quaintly adorned with decorative, 3-dimensional raised relief applied pewter embellishments depicting a young woman busily working at her spinning wheel. The young lady is sweetly attired in what appears to be Colonial-era/Quaker/Amish/Shaker-like clothing.
All of the lids have a raised, knobbed “ball”-style wooden handle, and indented ruffled/scalloped-esque edging. Identical scalloped ornamentation also enhances all the edges of the canister bases.
