Antique tapioca boxes from the late 19th century discovered at a market in southwest France. This 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 box (see photos).

Dimensions:  2.5ʺW × 1.25ʺD × 3.75ʺH.

PLEASE NOTE: This listing has the theme of "military". We also are offering sets with other images (equestrian, trains, couples) in separate Chez Vous Antques listings on Chairish. Just type "tapioca" into the Chairsh search bar to see the entire collection. We will consolidate purchases to save on shipping.

Condition is as-found with paper toning and wear; some labels askew as shown, one box bent in back (as shown and priced accordingly).

Free local pickup; otherwise shipped via economical USPS post.
