This is a classic circular bentwood box which is labelled for Brown Sugar. The box itself and its lid have simple construction with the overlaying sections secured with copper nails. The top has some fine circular concentric rows of tooling and on the side is a faded and somewhat worn label for Brown Sugar. There is some loss and scuffing of the lacquer and one minor fine crack but otherwise it is in very good condition for age. This would be a typical pantry box to add to a decorative stack of similar or coloured examples. Maximum diameter 9.5 ins (24.1cm) x closed height 5 ins (12.5cm). Weight 430 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside & Out” on page 104.
Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $41.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
