Antique Hygena shopping list

Antique Hygena shopping list

A scarce 1920/30's 'Hygena Cabinet' shopping list indicator. Made of laminated tin on card, with red-backed metal tabs that flick back and forth to remind the user of what the pantry is low on.


Originally these shopping lists were made to advertise the fitted kitchen units by Hygena of Liverpool - 'A Hygena Cabinet brings joy to the home', with their furniture designed to improve hygiene and efficiency in the kitchen. 


Approximate dimensions:

33.5cm tall

14.2cm wide



The list is missing three tags and one tag is reversed (Ammonia) but this could be rectified. The backing has some moisture damage and has swollen a bit. Some rust, staining and foxing on the front but this somewhat adds to the unique decorative appeal.

  • International customers and combined shipping

    International buyers (outside of the UK) - When you add an item to your cart you can select a shipping destination and the postage will be calculated. Usually this is correct, but for multiple purchases and larger items it is advisable to enquire before purchasing, as shipping is based on rough estimates to different regions and may vary to that stated. You may 'buy it now' with the shipping cost calculated, but if this is incorrect we may contact you after purchase. We will either issue a refund for the difference, or request for a remaining postage balance to be paid, either way we will always contact you before any changes are made. Our standard postage costs include tracking where possible and usually require a signature upon receipt, please also include a contact phone number when ordering. Postage to P.O. boxes must be enquired about before purchase as many shippers do not deliver to them. 

    *Multiple purchases - If you would like to purchase multiple items we can usually combine shipping. It is best to message us first for a shipping quote, but to avoid missing out you can purchase items through the website immediately without paying a shipping fee. Add the desired pieces to your cart, then view your cart and in order summary there is a drop down menu with postage options. Select *Multiple purchases & combined shipping* and the shipping price will be removed. You can now pay for your selected items and we will contact you with a shipping quote to then be paid separately.
