I wish I had more room in my kitchen, because this would be so cute sitting on the counter with old cooking utensils in it. This wooden box was probably made for one specific purpose, and someone used whatever wood was around to make the box. The pieces were cut to fit nicely, but the pieces are nailed together instead of using dovetailing. Originally, it must have had a lid, because there are remnants of leather strapping or hinges on the back that would have held the lid on. The front of the box also has three small holes where some kind of latching mechanism may have been. It is just so primitive and cute – lots of character. Measuring 11 3/8” x 5 ½” x 5 ½”, it’s not to big to sit on a shelf, counter or table. It is in rustic condition, but that’s why it’s so charming!
The utensils pictured are for sale separately in our shop.
