This ceramic spice tin explores a nostalgic vintage brand name – Taste-rite – combined with imagined contents that echo the goodness of it: Yerba Buena (the good herb.) It is entirely hand-formed and painted with fired-on ceramic colors recalling old tins in both size and character with touches of rust and sometimes a dent. The lid is removable, which adds a nice bit of functionality. Go ahead and use it for good herbs of your own, treats or treasures. Enjoy its retro looks on a shelf, perhaps in a group of several. It also makes a supremely tasteful gift!
