Yellow Garage dealer R.M. Worth Antiques is featuring an antique wood cutlery box. The double lidded cutlery caddy box was hand made in the age when the silverware caddy was prominently displayed on the dining room buffet table, sideboard or other easily accessible location. The carrier exhibits the well made craftsmanship of the era with its curved cut divider, turned handle and dovetail joints. The unfinished bottom is attached using small original nails. This lovely family heirloom was acquired from an estate in Ocean Grove, NJ. Age has graced the wood with a warm mellow patina. The carrier has wear befitting its age and over a century of use. It is in overall excellent condition as evidenced in the pictures. The carrier has generous proportions of 13” wide, 9” deep and 10” high at the handle. This striking antique cutlery box is perfect for those interested in acquiring early American utilitarian pieces of exemplary craftsmanship to display and enjoy in their home.
