Item details

Griffith Laboratories started producing their unique set of spices in their art deco styled spice jars in 1939. They advertised their process as a "Revolutionary, proprietary purifying method to make sure their product was clean, safe, and pure". Their product was an immediate success story and Griffith continued to produce their amazing spices and spice jars until the 1950's, adding slight changes to their milk glass jars through the years. Today Griffith Spice Jars are very desirable and our set of chocolate brown spice jars is the most difficult set to find. With original salmon colored lids that have their original metal inserts, our Griffith Spice Jars have the fired on labels in black print in front, but the back paper labels are missing, which does not affect the value and can be ordered online. Our spice jars will make a charming display, and can be used to hold your favorite spices. Our chocolate brown Griffith spice set looks fabulous and will add a whole new vintage dimension to your kitchen.

These spice bottles are about 70 years old and do show some signs of age. One bottle has a significant chip at the top which is not seen when the lid is on, as seen in photo 5, and we are including this jar for free. The other jars are in good vintage condition, but 3 have tiny flea bites on the back as seen in photo 4, which does not detract from their appeal. The lids vary in condition, with most being in very good condition to some having some rust, which is common with these metal lids. I have seen that some people put fresh coats of paint on the lids and it seems that sets that are in perfect shape have had their labels replaced and lids repainted. We are offering this set in its original condition, which I think lends to authentic charm, but labels can be purchased and lids painted if you like. Our Griffith Spice Jars measure about 4" tall with the lid and 1 1/4" wide, and there are 10, (11 if you count the chipped one). These unusual colored Griffith Spice Jars will add a wonderful retro touch to your kitchen, and a warm nostalgic vibe to your home.
