Note that this post was edited on 22 June 2015 to correct errors. I originally believed these spice jars to be Kiln Craft but members of the Beach family later told me they were made by Beach Artware in the early to mid 1970s. Beach Artware later changed hands and was renamed  Kiln Craft

I have been pondering these wee spice pots (9.5 cm tall).  And have finally found one that has a very solid match for my Kiln craft mug, right down to the tiny yellowish band at the bottom of the glaze dribble.  So no more umming and ahhing, Kiln Craft/Clay Craft they are! (EDIT as above, most of these jars are from the Beach Artware era.  The jar on the far right however was not recognised by the Beach family. It is either from the Kiln Craft/Clay Craft era, or it is a Hobby Ceramics duplicate. It is possible that the jar next to it is also later than the Beach Artware period.)

This is the base of the mug. The spice jars all have a flat dry base.

A lovely little collection of glazes. Takes up lot less room than mugs!

I see you have their sand glaze. Is it matt?

The speckly glaze - assuming made with sand - is very shiny. I found a mint sauce jug with the same glaze in three bands, further confirmation.

Compare with this, Val:

Maybe they forgot the clear over the top on my wee jug. I have a Beach shape mug in the very shiny sand glaze.

Val,
I'm pretty sure I saw the same mug in a box lot at auction last week with the typical flat Beach base. To much trouble to bother with but. I should have photographed it I guess but I didn't!
