Ceramic Vegetable Measuring Cups

Not to be outdone by my ceramic flower measuring spoons, soon after I found this set of ceramic vegetable measuring cups. There is something delightfully whimsical about these four, from the 1 cup artichoke to the 1/4 cup shallot, who doesn't love having vegetables around!

The measuring quantities are posted on the inside, although it's relatively easy to guess by looking at each of them.

 This ceramic shallot is a 1/4 cup measuring cup equivalent.

In doing a little online research, it appears these are vintage 1983 Avon Gallery Originals. I am missing the measuring spoon set of hot red peppers and the hanging rack that was part of the original set.

I will add that to my list of things to look for the next time I visit antique malls, nothing like a little treasure hunt or two to focus a window-shopping trip.
