An utterly charming piece of Welsh vernacular furniture. Designed to be wall hung, with a pierced shaped crest. The box was originally made to hold spices, salt or herbs.
All the timbers are original and it retains its original wire hinges.
Fabulous colour from years of daily use. In fine and original condition throughout with small knocks and dings consistent with age.
Lovely! A really fine original example with fantastic colour and rich entirely natural patina.
