This is a lovely clean set of FIVE Bristol Kitchenware storage jars manufactured by Pountney & Co. from 1963 until 1968.
The pattern is Old Bristol Delft, designed in 1963 by Honor Elliot, who also designed the better known LongLine range. It is a stylised re-working of the Tulip Pattern produced by the Bristol Pottery in the 17th century and the shape of the jars is that originally used in the 1930s for the Bristol Kitchenware range.
The pattern is a transfer print of a hand painted stylised tulip like flower in blue, yellow and red, with green leaves, on a cream background. The lids are plain blue.
There is one jar with a handle on the front measuring 6" tall and 5" square at the base, two which measure 5.5" tall and 4" square, and two without handles which are 3.5" tall and 2.5" square.
Both the jars and lids are in perfect condition with no chips, cracks, or crazing, and would make a fantastic addition to a collection, or a practical and stylish item for use in a vintage style kitchen.
Postage in the UK will be by Parcel Force Express 48 @ £15.30.
Because of the weight of these items posting abroad is probably impractical and could cost between £35 and £75. However if you are interested, please do ask for a quote.
