    White, spice canisters that are of different sizes.
    Dimensions:
    Small Canisters 8,5cm x 22,5cm ( nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, cloves)
    Large Canister 14cm x 36,5cm (Coffee, sugar, tea, flour, barley, rice)

    Looking for any information on the history of these canisters and if they have any worth?

      Wonderful Jen, I have not seen this design before. I'd say from the thirties. The stencil work was popular during and after the depression. But the the mark should tell all.
