This offering is for an antique 19th century wooden pantry box. The box features a single iron nailed lap with a matching lap on the lid. The box measures 5.25" to the top of the lid and 9.75" in diameter at the widest point. The original varnish finish has worn to a pleasant mellow coloring and the surface patina is very nice.
There is a tight crack in the single board lid and the base. If you look closely it looks like someone ran a tiny bead of glue around the base and lid edges where they meet the side walls. I guess they wanted to fill that tiny gap that occurs as the wood dried over the years.It's there, but it's not noticeable unless you go looking for it. If additional photo's are needed or you have need of answers to questions we do not address we will be happy to supply them. WE USUALLY SEND OUR INVOICE WITHIN 1 HOUR OF THE AUCTIONS ENDING.
