Mid 19th century Spice Tower with 4 stacking compartments. Turned from sycamore, with fine turnings, each section screws into the the lower pot. The top is slightly unusual, fashioned in the style of a pillar box. The accumulation of patina has left the surface uneven, showing its history. Clearly well used, the Spice Tower retains its original printed labels, with deterioration of the label on the base section. The wood has cracked at various points, and cleverly repaired, so the tower is stable and fits together perfectly. It has a lovely original feel and good colour. Circa 1840
