Vintage Glass Spice Bottles - 1970's Kitchen Storage Apothecary Botanical Specimen Bottles - Made in Taiwan
But in truth, should I meet with gold or spices in great quantity, I shall remain 'til I collect as much as possible, and for this purpose, I am proceeding slowly in quest of them. Christopher Columbus
This set of vintage glass spice bottles was made in Taiwan during the 1970's. Their labels have aged to a wonderfully chippy tea-stained brown which gives them each a lovely and unique personality. With their glass toppers and plastic sealers they are still fully functional as spice jars or there is an opportunity for more creative uses such as mini vases, botanical collections or specimen jars.
- Set of 6 bottles with the following labels: Allspice, Parsley, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Clove and Pepper
- Glass toppers included for each bottle
- These jars fit in this spice rack here but are listed separately due to other adaptive uses
- Each bottle is stamped with a made in Taiwan China mark (impressed in the glass) on the bottom
Each of the glass bottles are in bright and shiny and clear condition with no chips or cracks except for a small chip on the bottom of the nutmeg bottle. Please see photos. This chip does not affect the bottles ability to stand on its own or too hold interior contents without them leaking through. It's just a surface chip.
The paper labels are worn and chippy but securely attached to the bottles.
Each bottle measures 4.25" inches (height from base to top of stopper) x 1.5" inches (diameter).
In addition to traditional uses as storage, these bottles make gorgeous props for food photography and kitchen decor styling thanks to the patina of their authentically worn labels. Kitchen adventures were definitely had with these guys and they retain a sense of charm and rustic beauty whether filled with items or displayed empty.
