1950’s Tala Icing Set

One of my favourite vintage pieces in my home, is this Tala icing nozzle set. I got this last year in a house clearance shop. I can’t remember exactly what I paid but I know it wasn’t much. It is a complete set with the original box and instruction booklet and it looks fantastic on my vintage dresser.

There are quite a few of these out there as I have spotted them on Ebay and at car boot sales a couple of times so it’s definitely worth keeping your eyes peeled if you’d like something similar. A few months ago I spotted an older 1940s version of this but it was far more expensive so I didn’t get it. I’ve regretted leaving it behind ever since as I think they would have looked great next to each other. I won’t ever make this mistake again!

House clearance shops are a great place to pick up vintage home bits, they are often pretty cheap as they turn over stock very quickly and they seam to be everywhere.

    That box is such a gem! I love the classic mid-century confectionery hues and delightful, flowing fonts. So pretty!!!
