Bent Wood Shaker Pantry Box with Bent Wood Handle with Old Peg Holds. Very nice box from selective collector's estate. The box is in good shape but has moderate wear. The peg hold holes have worn some with age and there is some slight cracking in bent wood handle and some minor splitting in bent wood as shown in pics, but fairly solid overall. Please review multiple pictures taken for your consideration and use zoom feature if needed.There was some old green paint on inner rim edge of box, not sure of its origin as it is not elsewhere on box & the box has not been stripped. Perhaps someone painted another box that was sitting on top. This has very old iron nails and several square wood peg tacks that put this in mid to later 1800's. We think originally this had many more wood tacks in place, but they were replaced with some iron nails over the decades. There are leather buffer guards on handle at peg holes that were a later addition, probably to keep wood from rubbing.Approx: 11" D x 8.5" H (7.75" without lid), good mid sized box for display.
