From the woodworking shop at Sweetpea Cottage, we are offering this modern interpretation of an antique salt box, or hanging wall box. Constructed like a piece of fine furniture, it is ready for you to use. Hang it on the wall, or place it on a desk. Use it to store all of your car keys, loose stamps, or as a dresser box for tie-tacks and cuff-links. The uses are limitless for this handy little keepsake box.
Based on a design found in early salt boxes, this box has the classic folk art fan-tail handle for hanging on the wall and a hand carved leaf and acorn design sits on the lid. As an added bonus there is a small drawer with a brass pull. Both spaces are excellent for storing odds and ends. The maximum height is 8 3/16 inches tall with the actual box being 4 5/8 inches tall. It is 6 inches wide and 5 7/8 inches deep. It is made entirely out of solid quartersawn ash that was selected for its stunning grain pattern which seems to shimmer and ripple. Construction is all by hand with the lid hinged on rock maple dowels. The only piece of metal on this box is the solid brass knob on the drawer. Even the carved oak leaf cluster on the lid was hand carved at Sweetpea Cottage. The box has been carefully finished with an oil/ varnish finish and then buffed to a high sheen with a fine carnuba wax. The spectacular nature of the wood makes this item a box to behold. This salt box has many, many uses and is destined to become a family heirloom. What a great present for that special man in your life!
