Vintage "Jo-Beth-Co" brand 1 1/2 oz. turmeric spice tin from the Jobst, Bethard, Company, Peoria, Ill. The Jobst, Bethard Company was a wholesale grocery company that was established in Peoria in 1902.
This is a tin container with an applied paper label and slide across shaker/pouring tin top. The paper label on this container shows considerable age darkening and some roughness around the edges but still looks really sharp. The tin is a dark, almost navy blue and the contrast with the label gives the spice tin an especially attractive vintage appearance. This is a rare collectible that would be a great addition to a spice tin collection.
Circa 1902-1930, dimensions 3" tall x 2 1/4" wide x 1 1/4" deep
