Vintage Ceramic Canisters with Wildflower Pattern- Made by Hyalyn - Set of Three circa 1970s/1980s
A beautiful and useful way to give your kitchen class! (from a 1978 Hyalyn advertisement)
Spread those spring and summer wildflowers throughout the kitchen and watch your cook space bloom with beauty! This vintage trio of ceramic canisters was made by Hyalyn in Hickory, North Carolina between the 1970s-1980s. They feature a wildflower pattern - a colorful bouquet of blossoms that is different on each jar. Complete with airtight, rubber-sealed wooden tops, these beauties were functional and fun in the kitchen back then and remain so today.
Hyalyn made all sorts of decorative ceramics for home interiors including lamps, ashtrays, planters, jugs and cookie jars. Owned and operated by husband and wife team, Leslie and Frances Moody from the mid-1940s to the mid-1970s, they were purchased by Cosco in 1973, awho continued manufacturing under the Hyalyn name. As seen in advertisements in vintage newspapers, this style canister set was a popular kitchen addition in the 1970s and 1908s and was offered in a bevy of other patterns as well including plain, stonewashed and strawberry.
The flowers were by far the prettiest pattern though. A lovely addition to any botanical lover's space or nature-inspired interior, this set looks great displayed with their tops on or off, for a bevy of organizing options.

Each canister is very clean inside and out. There are no chips or cracks except for two tiny little nicks - one near the bottom edge of the large canister and the other one on the inside rim of the canister with the red and yellow poppy flowers. These chips are less than 1/8th" inch in size and barely noticeable. The wooden tops are in great shape - clean and splinter-free both inside and out, with very little wear considering their 50 years of life. The rubber seals are built into the underside of each lid but are removable. Please see photos.
