LATE 19TH CENTURY ANTIQUE ART NOUVEAU BELGIAN COFFEE CANISTER TIN'DEMOULIN CAFE SPECIAL,' LE MEILLEUR DES CAFES DE BESTE DER KOFFIES. Art Nouveau decorative coffee tins.
8 ½" Height x 6" Width. Coffee tin is most likely almost 130 years old, it's in what most people would consider to be in nearly unbelievable and remarkable, almost unscathed vintage condition. The lithographed transfer graphic iconography on the sidewalls of the tin canister is superb, with still radiant, vivid, vibrant color and a noticeably Art Nouveau color palette, as well as Art Nouveau decorative meandering scroll ribboning and the recognizable softness and erotic allure of Art Nouveau female figuration. Found in the estate of a relocated Belgian woman, who only had and continued to live with her original Flemish furniture and decorative accessories here in New England, where she moved to.This grand ole' Flemish-speaking, Belgian dame tried to bring Europe with her when she made the fateful trip across the pond to live with her husband. This tin came with her. Magnificent and just a beautiful vintage decorative object. It would be difficult to ask for one to come in much cleaner, better preserved condition than this. Very Good to Excellent overall antique condition. The item "LATE 19TH C VINT ART NOUVEAU BELGIAN'DEMOULIN CAFE SPECIAL' COFFEE TIN WithLID" is in sale since Saturday, December 22, 2018.
