Vintage Red Wooden Kitchen Boxes Set. These are so great! Set of 3 pieces - two squarish ones with hinged lids and 1 odd shaped with opening. On the front of these pieces are what seem to be stencils. The odd shaped one has a chef on top and coffee grinder, cup, coffee beans and possible coffee filters??? This piece measures 10" x 10 1/2" x 1 3/4". The word is Gewurze. It is German and it means "condiment, seasoning, spice, aromatic substance used for seasoning of food, aromatic odor or fragrance, flavoring, zest, aromatic herbs" It also has graphics of mushrooms, leaves, spices, pepper, salt shaker and little jars with "curry" written on it. They measure 9" x 4 1/2" x 5 1/2". All are painted in an farmhouse red with great patina and in good vintage condition with the typical scuffs and scrapes. They all have holes on top for hanging. They also sit by themselves if you rather not hang them on a wall! An unusual set that has many possibilities for use and decor!
A shout out to Tarisa Smith who helped solve the mystery of what the language and meaning of the words were. Thank you Tarisa!
