This is a sharp looking old spice tin. The front and the back have the same blue, mustard and metallic gold graphics with the S within an orange diamond logo and Pure Caraway Seed. One side panel has a promo about the quality of the spice and the other panel has the company information; Packed and Guaranteed by David Spencer, Limited – Vancouver Factory. Apparently Spencer’s was a large department store in B.C. Canada during the late 1800’s and into the 1900’s. The top has a slide style lid for shaking or pouring. I believe this is from the 1920’s or 1930’s.
It measures about 2 3/8” wide by almost 1” deep by 3 ¼” tall and is in very nice condition with good color and gloss and minor scuff wear. One side has a few scratches and the side of the lid have lost most of the gold plating and is discolored but the top of the lid is shiny.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual size.
