Pair of 1940's Nestle Jars with Mexican Brass Overlay, Lid and Pourer
Nice pair of 1940's Nestle jars with Mexican hand wrought overlays, on has a brass lid and the other a brass pouring spout. These were the first "counter top" jars, as instant coffee had just been invented, so they had pride of place and contained coffee and powdered milk or powdered chocolate (according to taste). Nice little usable example of American beverage history, they would still work wonderfully for their original purpose, or be great on display with other vintage kitchenware. Condition is good as to age, there is some very minor denting to the brass lid, otherwise excellent.
