Beautifully engraved (19th century design) certificate from the Stickney and Poor Spice Company issued in 1953. This historic document has an ornate border around it with a vignette of a spice container. This item has the hand signatures of the Company’s President and Secretary.
In 1846, Rufus Stickney took over his father’s Boston-based spice business, becoming the sole proprietor of what was to become the Stickney & Poor spice company. In Somerville, Massachusetts Stickney Avenue, between School and Marshall, is named after him. The company was located in Sullivan Square on the corner of Cambridge & Spice Street, directly opposite of what is now the MBTA station. Stickney & Poor is the oldest spice milling company in the United States and today the name Stickney & Poor remains alive on billions of condiments and spice packets. In 2015, it celebrated its 200th birthday.
