White, spice canisters that are of different sizes.
Dimensions:

Looking for any information on the history of these canisters and if they have any worth?

    Wonderful Jen, I have not seen this design before. I'd say from the thirties. The stencil work was popular during and after the depression. But the the mark should tell all.
