Georgian Antique English Provincial Oak Wood Salt Box with Hinged Lid (Code 1069)
A late Georgian period English provincial salt box in oak. It has a simple bracket with central hole for hanging which is cut from the plank back. The flip top lid reveals a plain interior. Lovely aged patina and colouring and ideal for a rustic or period interior. The construction is nailed and the hinges are in brass.
Normal period wear, ageing, knocks etc, see images for exterior presentation. Screws in the hinges are likely replacements, and one is missing. Split down the plank back with minor damage to one top corner where it becomes the bracket. Minor splits and creep as expected.
