A ceramic , early 1900s , wooden wall spice rack . Probably of German origin, perhaps Swiss! The white ceramic boxes decorated with a pretty blue floral design. Not signed/marked. Three lower large containers and six smaller upper ones - none of which is labelled ( a healthy challenge to one's memory ! ). It does not necessarily have to be mounted on a wall - it can simply be placed wherever one wishes in the kitchen. Certainly, a ' must have' for any astute lady of the house!
Size, overall : L. 34 cm. ( 13 25/64" ) x B. 12.5 cm. ( 4 59/64" ) x H. 19.5 cm. ( 7 43/64" ).
Larger box: 10 cm. ( 4") x 10 x 10 cm.
Smaller box: 10 cm. ( 4" ) x 4.5 cm. ( 1 49/64" ) x 4.5 cm. ( 1 49/64" ).
Overall weight : 3,004 g. ( 6 lb. 10 oz. )
Condition : overall very good for its age - some few patches of fading of the blue floral design - please see photographs - no chips/cracks to the ceramic containers.
