~ More Tala goodness... the bread box!


As I was doing my daily check of eBay... I saw something incredible. 

And since I had previously posted about Tala baking and kitchen wares that I already own... here is the matching bread box to the canister set. That I do not own.

That has to be the best looking bread box I have ever encounter. And I am depressed that it is located in the UK. Where it would require at least $55.00 in postage to get it to my home. :(

But lets look at some pictures of it!
This one shows the Tala markings on the bottom...

Again... $55.00 in postage alone... to get it to my front porch. :( 

But as I continue to roam in eBay... I come across these....

Its the pastry cutters with the crinkle edges! With their original tin canister! And 16.00 worth of postage could get them to my front door... :(  


I also realize that these vintage Tala items were sold in the US. Oodles of them. So they have made it on my list of kitchen things, I will hunt for on my adventures.  Especially that bread box... :)

I did come across a amazing Tala booklet with images of what was produced for the Tala Kitchen wares line...

I can truly appreciate a vintage listing, of what all can be located for a line of kitchen wares.... and this one is incredible.

ETA: It sold! For 87.60 US dollars... for the bread box... 
and 50.45 USD for the pastry cutters...

I am working on going through your blog backwards... I work for wayfair.com, and currently have a mess of Tala products in my idea boards because they have such a fun vintage feel to them. they almost look like they were taken from some back stock. Just in case you'd be interested :)
