Not Counterpoint, But Colorful - And Pretty Cool!

I found this fabulous set of ten colorful nesting, stacking boxes at Mountain Treasures in Sonora.
They are very similar to my Counterpoint boxes (which I have written about before), and they were also made in Japan, but by a different company.
The eight smallest ones are in perfect condition, and only the largest two are less than perfect. I think they were probably in a smoker's home, as they are discolored somewhat - cigarette smoke will do that. I have seen it before. (No, I do not smoke and never have - I DO purchase a fair amount of vintage, pre-owned stuff, though. And if it smells, I don't want it.)
They are really a nice set, and I was tickled when I spotted them!

And the bright and colorful woven shawl I found the same day at a thrift store isn't bad, either!
Gorgeous colors:

It's big, too - as you can see below:

Pretty stuff.

Displaying them on the beautiful woven shawl is a great way to photograph them.
Wonderful boxes. They look like they are all in great shape. Nice find.
