Hornsea Canisters Saffron Set of 6 England 1970s designed by John Clappison.
The backstamps shows these items to be produced in 1976 and 1977.
This set of 6 is made up of 2 large canisters, 2 medium canisters, 1 salt and 1 pepper pot.
None of the items have labels, so they can easily be used for anything.
The canisters are made of glazed white clay.
There is one chip to the base of each of the large canisters and 1 chip to the base of the Pepper Pot.
The inside of 2 wooden lids is damaged but this does not prevent them closing/sealing. See last photo.

2 medium canisters are 115mm tall with lid, 110mm diameter and 570g each
