Antique Blue Spice Box - Wooden spice box made out of teak wood from Maharashtra - more then 90 years old

Size: 10 inches x 11.5 inches

Any Indian kitchen is incomplete without a spice box. Indian cooking methods usually require a quick succession of spices and powders to be added while the oil is at the right temperature. A spice box ensured that all the spices were quickly and easily available. The little containers would be replenished from a larger stock when the spice ran out. A spice box was always found near the stovetop. Wood was the perfect material to retain the freshness of the spice and keeping the moisture out.

In the old Indian homes, everyday objects were created with much love and painstaking detail. The carving on this wooden spice box is a testament to the spirit of those old days. Such a spice box would increase the aesthetic appeal of the kitchen lending a touch of creativity to the cook who beheld it.
