Vintage set Pickwick tea cans by Douwe Egberts

SKU: 162

Vintage set of Pickwick tea cans.  

Set of three vintage Pickwick tea cans produced by Douwe Egberts in red, yellow and green.  

Pickwick is a tea brand by Douwe Egberts. This brand dates back to 1937, before D.E. sold nameless tea at first in 1753 in a shop at the city of Joure (Friesland, the Netherlands). 

The name Pickwick was inspired upon the title of the book 'The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club' by Charles Dickens. The wife of the former managing director had read this book and suggested the original English sounding name 'Pickwick' as name for the new tea brand.
