Over 40 years ago I built my home. I designed my kitchen around German Blue & White Deltware. I still live in that house and still love my kitchen delft decor. I say this because this design has stood the test of time both in my home and many country home magazines. Salt boxes are not currently used as salt boxes by many but they have many other re-purposing uses. I store garlic in one. There is a wood lid. Note in the photo, a screw is missing. This has currently been replaced. The It is made to hang on a wall. The blue design is traditional with the sail boats and windmills. The bottom is marked Renate Made in Germany. It measures 4" x 5" x 6 1/2". There is a large chip on the side near the back and base. Other wear is shown. Because this type of pottery was used it often has a few scars. This piece is in very good condition.
