Vintage Spice of Life Canning Jar - Made in France by ARC - 1 Litre Size Storage Container
The French approach the food on their plates with an eye toward the visual, toward the arrangement of shapes and colors ...they are concerned with the blends among foods, the delicate variations and shadings that can be obtained by increasing or decreasing certain ingredients, adding one flavor, subtracting another... (from McCall's Introduction to French Cooking)
The vintage Spice of Life pattern was made by the American company Corning but it its theme was based on French food and cooking. This pattern also, known as French Spice, contained a plethora of kitchen items that ran the gamut from from baking dishes to coffee pots, cheese boards to salt and pepper shakers.
