Blackbird Pie Spice Tin


Recalling a vintage spice brand – Blackbird – this lovely container is completely hand-formed and decorated individually, similar in size and appearance to a metal tin. The retro graphics show a redwing blackbird on cattails against a sky blue background.  The contents complement it all, perhaps ironically: Pie Spice! (As in “Four and twenty blackbirds, baked in a pie…”)

  • 100% Ceramic
  • Working lid
  • Food-safe interior
  • Touches of rust and wear to fool the eye.
  • Lovely gift!

This ceramic spice tin explores a nostalgic vintage brand – Blackbird – combined with contents that treat it ironically – Pie Spice. 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 spices, treats or treasures.   Enjoy its retro looks on a shelf, perhaps in a group of several. It also makes a great gift!
