Pantry Boxes

Colonial women fought an ongoing battle to keep bugs and mice away from dry staples until the introduction of covered stoneware crocks and wood pantry boxes. Did you know that American factories began producing wood pantry boxes in the late 18th century? Some were simply varnished, diagnosis but many were painted in pretty colors that brightened dark keeping rooms when stacked floor to ceiling.

This beauty will be for sale on my website, health along with other treasures found on my latest New England buying trip. Paint is original and there are no cracks or breaks. It is a real beauty. If you have any questions, online please do not hesitate to email me.
