An oak cased set of 6 Horlicks half pint jars with spice labels. Five of the original jars are clear glass with embossed caps, the sixth original jar is milk glass with plain original cap. Overall size of the box measures about 9-1/2 wide by about 9" tall and about 6" deep. Excellent overall condition and a rare survivor.

One other similar example of a Horlicks spice chest was reported by Tom Caniff in the ABGC magazine in March 2011. That chest was not made of wood, but was similar in form and the jars didn't have labels. The inside of the lid in that box had a promotional placard for Horlicks. The underside of the box lid in this auction may have been lined similarly, as two tacks remain under the lid.

This wonderful rarity turned up at several years ago at an estate auction in Missouri, and is presented exactly as found.
