Antique tapioca boxes from the late 19th century discovered at a market in southwest France. These charming boxes are unused stock from an abandoned cereal factory. Each is wrapped in glossy paper overlaid with a chromolithographic image on the front, product information label on the back, and a paper seal on the top which pulls back to reveal a hole into which the tapioca would have poured. While lovely to put on display by themselves, we think they make darling flower vases and include a florist tube with each.
Dimensions: 2.5"W x 1.25"D x 3.75"H (6.4cm W x 3.2cm D x 9.5cm H).
We also are offering sets with other images (equestrian, love, trains) in separate Chez Vous Antques listings. We will consolidate purchases to save on shipping expense.
Condition is as-found with paper toning and wear; some labels askew as shown, one box bent in back (see photos); price adjusted accordingly.
Free local pickup; otherwise ships to you from the U.S. via the most economical method. All customs duties, fees, and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.
