Very nice set of 24 spice jars from The Danbury Mint. These are from 1992 / 1993 and are different buildings from all over the world. Many are replicas of famous structures / buildings from each specific part of the world. This set is named "Spices of the World". This is one of the sets w you get a spice jar every few months, takes several years to collect them all and it is a COMPLETE SET!! This set is retired and is very collectible as well as a wonderful decorator set for the home. The jars range in size from 1 3/4" W X 3" H to 2 1/2" W X 5" H. Each jar is made of porcelain, has a removable top, is stamped on the bottom with the date 1990, 1991, 1992 or 1993 and the building name or landmark / historical marker type, etc. In black lettering is the name of a specific spice on the fornt of each jar. The lids have a rubber type attachment around the inside to assure that it goes on and stays on. Hand Wash. Each jar has hand painted gold trim / accents. Original price was $20 each . No rack.
