- Curator's comments
- These spice-jars were known as model 1931. They were produced in two sizes (9.5 and 12.5 cm high) and each cover was made individually, to fit each body precisely. The covers were also ground internally, while the jars were ground externally, again ensuring a tight, precise fit. This greatly increased manufacturing costs.
