~ Vintage Tala... Made in England!

Now as a collector of vintage kitchen items, I enjoy the vintage baking items the most. 

Tala is a brand of baking items that were made in England. 

That seem to have been a well stocked item for many kitchens decades ago here in the US. They are still very much in business to this day. With an incredible line of things to buy. 

The current line of Tala, is this wonderful retro looking 1960's line of items. I love the use of turquoise for these. Love that Sugar shaker!

In my personal collection of baking goodies.... I have a set of the vintage Tala cookie cutters.

So as I am looking through the vintage Tala items.... I realize I have something else from this vintage line. I have the Tala pastry cutters too!

I had picked these up at a local sale for a dollar, a year or so ago. Thinking they were fancy looking biscuit cutters. :)   Well it seems they are the pastry cutters from Tala.

This is a picture of the the pastry cutters in their original red tin can... that I unfortunately do not own. I wish my cutters had came with this divine vintage tin!

The newer Tala pastry cutters have an updated handle.... and a dazzling new blue can.
This is actually the pastry cutters with the crinkled edges. I love these blue tin cans!

There are other Tala baking items from the vintage baking line...

Which were advertised on the box of cookie cutters.

I am now on the hunt for the Tala icing set, to add to my little collection. Hoping I can find it in its original box. :)

Be sure to take a peek at all the wonderful things at...

Well thank you... :)

I never made the connection of the brand "Tala" till I was roaming around in Pinterest. That there was an amazing line of vintage baking goodies to collect.

And if you look at the top picture in the post... it is Tala that had issued those old jadeite green wood handle utensils! And canisters too.

I don't even want to admit... to how many of those old canisters that I have passed by... *cheap*

But those green wood handle utensils, have always been pricey due to their color.

How fun to have a collection that always keeps you on the prowl for more! The graphics on vintage items are just the best.. so charming! Thanks for sharing the background of these products (who would have thought they were still in business as so many companies have closed up shop?). Happy hunting!!

Oh my gosh, that old tin is to die for. Wish you could find one to store your cute cutters in. I have never heard of this brand, but I too adore vintage cooking items. Especially thing with red or green wooden handles. Now I will be on the look out for some Tala. lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
