Spice Box

This simple design is typical of the spice box most homes would have had - a box or jar with a removable lid.   The 16th century discovery of America and the western Hemisphere gave rise to the term "New World." Due to the new trading routes which then emerged from the New World, spices such as pepper, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger, which had previously been seen as luxuries became more available.
