Delightful and uncommon wall mount salt box or cellar. Has a lovely depression era country feel. The rectangular box and depth are not typical design features of salts. As well, it made to sit on the counter or table (note the elevated feet) OR hang on the wall (note the unusually large hole to allow slipping it onto a peg or hanger). The lid is hinged with countersunk screws and has attractive routered edge. Marked Made in Germany (photo). Underglaze stenciling of flower and decorative frieze in three colors (on a white ceramic body) . As nice a "salt" as we have found in a long time -- from a 19th century homesteaded estate in northern Wisconsin. Please note: photos may have a bluish cast; the body color of this piece is basically bright white. Dimensions: approximately 4 1/4 by 3 3/4 inches (the box); height to the lid is 5 3/4 inches, overall height at back is 8 1/2 inches. Condition is excellent with only modest wear to the surface of the lid and a couple of TINY nicks on one foot. All intact; no damage.
Questions always welcome; more photos gladly.
