New Find ~ Blue Onion in the Kitchen

Saturday, March 14, 2015


I don't take it for granted.

Having a husband that actually enjoys strolling through antique shops with his wife is a blessing and I'm so thankful.

While we were out last Saturday I spied some blue and white.





Vivid colors,
no chips or cracks,
and the price was perfect...yippee!



They are Blue Onion Japan canisters, customized pieces imported from Japan by the Arnart company in the 1950's.  No great find of monumental value, I just love the style.

The largest pieces are the flour and cookie canisters.
Other pieces, like the sugar, tea, coffee, start tapering down in size.
There are lots of pieces that can be added to this collection in addition to the canisters. 






I've placed them near Granny's blue and white teapot and the glass front cabinets with my blue and white dishes.


I'll be keeping my eye out for other pieces...the thrill of the hunt, right?

  2. Love your blue pieces. Blue and white are just hard to resist.

    I also love that little candy dish rooster. That is the second time you have had something that I have. I always try to look for those usual pieces that are different than others:) I think we must have similar tastes. I purchased it because it reminded me of my grandma. She ALWAYS had a candy dish out with candy for the grandchildren.

    The first time was the rooster that you had pictured on your island, I believe.

  16. Just gorgeous! You know I love blue and white too. As for size, I think that the cookie jar should be the largest! You never want to run out of cookies.

  23. Hi, Cindy! I just discovered your wonderful blog and love your blue and white canisters. Just this week, I saw a few similar canisters in a thrift store, but they were a tan and white, same shape. They really caught my eye due to the shape and I didn't buy them but may go back for a second look. Have you seen your collection in the tan and white? Thanks so much for sharing!
