Box And Cover, 19th century
Pantry boxes were a popular household tool to store foodstuffs in the kitchen such as dried beans. The boxes were made by hand in the early nineteenth century before they were mass produced in woodenware factories from the 1870s. Delicate branded intaglio decoration lends this example a lively pattern.
