Featured item: Antique VICTORIA Schmidt CZECH Porcelain Canister Set - 1920's - NR!

I'm really proud to present to you this antique porcelain kitchen canister set. I had a chance to see individual pieces of this set time to time but I never saw so large collection. Set includes total 15 canisters, and all with top lids. It comes to you in near excellent condition considering its age. T are only 2 pieces with defects - the ear of one top lid on "Oil" canister is broken, and one of the small lids has crack on the inside - this one is not visible unless lid will be flipped up side down - you can see both defected pieces on the pictures on very bottom of this page. So once again, just two small lids are defected and all other pieces comes in really great, near excellent condition - they show only minor wear, some spots with missing paint but no other cracks or major chips. It is hard to believe that those delicate pieces survived about 80 years and that they are still so well preserved. Please take look on the pictures and read more below.

"Victoria" Schmidt & Co , Stará Role, Czech Republic (Altrohlau, Bohemia, Austria) Victoria - this is the set featured on this auction. All 15 pieces are marked with Victoria Schmidt & Co marks - the mark show Crown rounded with "Victoria" sign above and Czecho-Slovakia below. This factory mark indicates the date when all piece were made and in this case you see amazing collection which dates back in 1920's (1918-1939). Some of the pieces have also stamped 3-digits numbers in gold.
The factory w those pieces come from was founded back in 1883 by Lazarus and Rosenfeld, Ltd. and two years later has been sold to Franz Schmidt getting also new name Schmidt & Co. It was a huge company running mostly commercial production however this company also made many really beautiful and high quality porcelain products.
This Salt canister is rally one of the kind - still in excellent shape, even wood cover is preserved very well... It measures 5-1/2" x 4-1/2" x 7"
The whole set is 100% good for any future use. All pieces are clean, and ready for your kitchen... From the other side it is very rare to see so large collection like this and because of the overall great condition this set has also relatively high value as antique/vintage porcelain collection. The six large canisters measures approximately 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" x 8" each and the two slick, tall containers for Oil and Vinegar are 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" x 9-3/4" each
Dining room, kitchen or any other place - this set will change the look and feel of that place - is huge, is old, is beautifully designed and decorated. The six smaller spice canisters measures 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 4-3/4" each
This could be also excellent addition to any collection of Czech, Bohemian or Austrian porcelain - Perfect gift for the right person as well! As you may noticed the vintage porcelain is not what I'm usually selling but I'm proud to have a chance to present this set. Simply because is beautiful, simply because is extremely well preserved and simply because the whole set makes nice collection just itself and those are very hard to find these days. It is my wish that this set will go into good hands, to someone who will appreciate its overall beauty and value. Good luck to bidders - Auction with No Reserve!
