Circular bentwood tin-bound spice box labelled ‘Spices’ and fitted with eight smaller spice boxes. In the centre of the base there is a faint, punched mark for 'Patent Package Co., Newark New Jersey, Patd Aug.31 1858' as well as a stamped rubbed name – the only legible section of this is for Bethesda, P.A. (see image). The internal round boxes are for peppers, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, mace, allspice, nutmeg and mustard. In excellent condition for age. All containers are of identical construction and appear original - there is some variation of colour. There is an area of separation of the timber of the main lid from its metal surround (see image). This could be from shrinkage. Diameter 9.5 ins (23.5cm), depth 3.5 ins (9cm). Weight 764 grams. This item can be seen in the book, "Antique Boxes - Inside and Out", on page 103.
