Cheviot Treasures

SOLD  Three Early Pantry Boxes


Cheviot TreasuresCheviot Treasures is located in Oakville, Ontario

Three round splint pantry boxes of different sizes. All appear to be wearing their original paint. One is dark green, another red-brown and the paint on the 3rd is much worn but shows it’s original blue. The diameters are roughly 6”, 7 1/8” and 8 ¼” so they nest nicely and make an attractive trio. The green box was found approx. 2 miles from Calais, Maine near the NB border. The red-brown from the Niagara peninsula and the blue one from the Eastern Townships, Quebec. All are bentwood construction and secured by small wooden pins & metal brads. The sides are probably ash. Lids & bottoms are solid boards. As to age, I believe these date from the 1870’s.
