English Pine Cutlery Box
This is a wonderful English cutlery box made of pine. Cutlery boxes were used to store and carry tableware from the storage area (pantry) to the dining area. Note the the side of this box are slanted, as they should be. As with most cutlery boxes, this box has two compartments with a cut out handle. The cutlery box is old; it shows wear, especially on the bottom. There is a single pice of wood on the bottom of the cutlery box. The cutlery box is held together with square nails.
The cutlery measures 14 3/8 inches wide, and 10 inches deep. It is 5 inches high at the handle.
A great antique ready to be used.
