Counterpoint Canisters

I have mentioned vintage Counterpoint items before in my posts, and here is the picture shown previously of my canister set, found at a thrift store:
But I just found another pair of canisters a couple of weeks ago (and the recipe box I found at the same thrift shop for 50 cents looks pretty cute with them). This pair has a different blue and green combination:
They all look pretty good together up on top of this cupboard with some of my Ransburg pottery:

I find myself looking for them online all the time. I found these next two sets a while back on Etsy:
I didn't buy them; I only admired them from afar:

And here are some more, pictured in this layout from a 1970's Seventeen magazine. See them up on the shelf?

Here they are again on the left. In addition, please notice the colorful cardboard boxes like mine stacked on the shelves in the picture below, which were also made by Counterpoint:

I keep spotting these cool vintage Counterpoint items, and I just LOVE all of this stuff! I love that they are useful and colorful, and I am SO glad that I have saved some of my favorites since I was a teenager. I never tire of looking at them.
And I'll always keep looking for more!
