Spices of the Season - Spice chests

Spices were considered so costly that many special spice chests were made to store and treasure them in. These two little cuties above are circa 1950 and are marked made in Japan.
Definitely an older style chest. Made of tin, you can still read the names on the drawers.

This is one of the oldest we have. Just love the way the wooden knobs are done on this piece and it has an area for baking powder and baking soda.
From Bertha Reppert's original collection, these are two we are willing to part with. Contact us for particulars. Unfortunately, you can't read the names of the spices very well. I love the carrying cases that these come with and I especially love that the one on the left can lock. Just can't trust those servants.....
