It is a charming small oval pantry box dated on the lid of 1817 and initialled gb with a wooden ankle construction. It has a beautiful original dry patina and is made from curved wood.
The lid is solid and well built with double rope closures on the seam. The top of the lid is dated and initialled. It's a very early room the oval box itself is awesome. It still has double rope seam closures, but the wire has moved away from the outside of the box on one of the rows, but can be seen inside the box.It has a beautiful wooden ankle construction holding the bottom of the box on the sides and around the top of the lid now on the sides of the lid. There is a small crack of tight age on the bottom of the box. It is a superb old bent wooden pantry box with character and charm. It measures: 5.75 inches in diameter, 4.5 inches wide and is 2.75 inches high. Come visit my shop for other great primitive antiques: carrymebackantiques.
