Primitive Salt Box

An antique laminated salt box which was a must in kitchens from days gone by. This wooden salt barrel is quite handsome, constructed of wood stave's much like wooden barrels and buckets. The slats alternate in light & dark wood around the primitive kitchen salt box. Note the large doughnut hole on the top back plate so this handy piece of kitchenware may be hung on a wall, it also sits sturdy on a flat surface. I believe the rounded back plate was cut straight on top to accommodate sitting under a shelf (it is not broken & original to design). The lid flips up for easy and quick access. On front is a pewter plaque "Salt", describing the mineral it should contain. I really can't think of any other spices or herbs that received such large containers other than sugar.

Size: 10-1/2" x 5-1/2"

Condition: Pristine. The laminated wood is in excellent condition with normal surface wear from salt dating back to the 1800's. All hardware appears to be original.
