I love these canisters! I had forgotten about them when I was recently in need of new ones. They came out in 1990, and they were so expensive! I dreamed of having them one day when I saw them back then. Seems so simple. Canisters. The best part, I paid only $75 for the whole set! They are usually $75 each, or more if they are in good shape. I lucked up on these! They were used on display for Lenox. They are in excellent shape!
