This circa 1940 vintage wooden silverware storage chest was made for Oneida Community flatware patterns but of course it can be used with any set. It will hold silver service for 8 (there are eight knife slots) plus serving pieces. It's all one level, no drawers, with a stepped or layered base.
The cherry or reddish-brown stained finish has quite a bit of scuff wear to the lid as well as a few shallow scratches. The inside is lined in anti-tarnish red velvet type fabric with a white satin panel. There are some tarnish marks to the knife area in the lid as shown but no tears or holes. The metal Community Plate and Good Housekeeping labels are firmly attached and in good condition. The chest measures 16-3/4 inches by 12-1/4 inches by 3-1/2" high.
