German Mehl (flour) Crock, kitchen box
Delightful and uncommon flour box or cellar, suitable for wall-mount or counter top use. 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 chamfered edge. Marks are indistinguishable. Underglaze dark blue stenciling of flowers and foliage in traditional motifs (on a white ceramic body) and the word “Mehl.” (flour in German). A truly hard-to-find piece – from a 19th century homesteaded German estate in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Please note: While photos may have a slight bluish cast, the body color of this piece is bright white. Dimensions: approximately 6 ¾ wide by 4 ¼ inches front-to-back (the box); height to the lid is 4 ½ inches; overall height at back is 8 ½ inches. Condition is excellent with only slight use wear to the surface of the base on which it sits. All intact; no damage. Questions always welcome; more photos gladly. Shipping via USPS Priority mail includes tracking and insurance. Thank you.
