Fresh to the market, direct from an Illinois country farm auction, comes this fabulous and sturdy antique natural wood pantry box with attic finish and original bail handle.
This big, beautiful box measures 11 ½" in diameter at lid and stands just over 6 ¼" tall at the top of lid. The original bail handle is secure and the lid and bottom of the box are strong and secure. There is no looseness anywhere. There are a few thin age splits in the lid's rim but do not appear to affect the stability or integrity of the lid at all (see photos).
The seam has a row of small hand-wrought nails and the bottom of the box is secured with tiny wooden pegs. The box has a few honest areas of discoloration scattered here and there from age and use on the farm...but overall it is in fabulous, clean condition.
This is an outstanding example of a primitive pantry box from the heart of farm country and would look amazing in your collection, in a stack, or standing alone in a country cupboard. This is one that I'm really having a hard time letting go. A spectacular find!
