Fabulous Early Old Antique Attic Finish Simple Wooden Slant Top Desk Box
I just love this wonderful early wooden slant top box with the best attic finish! What a fantastic piece! This old box measures 18 ¼" wide, 16 ½" deep and 11" tall at the back. The hinges work great and the box is solid and substantial. It is in excellent condition for it's age.
There are two small "inscriptions" on the lid...one says "G.S. Lawall" and the other says "C. Femmer" (?). These are both old, inscribed onto the surface long ago, but are not obtrusive and only adds to the character and charm of the piece. Almost looks like something from an early schoolhouse. The construction was done with old round nails. There is the original hinge on the front.
A good friend and fellow antique seller came up with a fantastic idea for this piece....why not use it to lay a cookbook or an iPad on while working in the kitchen! It would be a perfect angle for viewing recipes, all while keeping your hands free. You could store a few cookbooks inside and have a wonderful primitive piece for display on your counter or table as well!
This early piece is absolutely fabulous, and displays beautifully. Would look amazing anywhere in your country home décor!
