Sellex canister set

Selex canister setSellex bakelite kitchen canister set
made in Australia c. 1940s

I have posted Sellex canisters previously – but this is an entire set, which is now rare to find. It’s a transfer label, white bakelite set consisting of Flour, Tea, Sugar, Rice and Sago. The Tea label has now been lost- probably due to over-use..but you notice the Sago label is still going strong….I’m just saying.

These canisters would look great in a monochrome white modernist kitchen.

This delicious creamy-white, hard-worn bakelite canister set is for sale; $AUD95

Yellow bakelite canisters [sold]

Sellex yellow bakelite canisters
made in Australia c.1940-1950

How about that yellow! I haven’t seen much yellow bakelite and this is startling in its intensity. It puts the banana and pineapple to shame. Inferior in colour AND in plastics!

These nested canisters are part of a set of 5. They are in excellent condition – for yellow bakelite. If you have been following my love [read obsession] with bakelite canisters [see below for evidence] you’ll be aware of  the bakelite colours of the 40s and 50s. This is the one and only yellow example I have come across.

The banana and pineapple were added to the image for a bit of fun…but if you like the ensemble, I am happy to send you the lot.  For sale: $AUD45
