Super Early Spice Tin

Year: Early 19th century
Weight: 2 lbs

Today Im listing a really interesting spice container made by a tinsmith decorated with paint and lacquer and a wonderful period brass handle which helps date this piece to the forst half of the 19th century.Found in New Jersey but I dont know if it originates from this area or not.I once had a tin box very much like this except one side was for knives the other forks.Expected wear for age/use but it very good condition.I would make a great gift!
