ANTIQUE ICE BOX
EARLY SOLID PINE WOOD
TWO COMPARTMENT ICE STORAGE CHEST
A rare find- antique wooden ice box or ice chest. A beautifully crafted and functional early wood furniture piece with two storage compartments with hinged doors and a raised design with pedestal legs. The old brass door knob and hardware are all original to the piece. These were used for keeping foods cold with a large block of ice placed in the top compartment.
This old original primitive beauty was hand crafted from nicely grained and beautifully colored solid pine. The original pencil markings made by the craftsman may be seen in the chest’s underside. Estimated circa mid to late 19th century possibly earlier. For lots more pics and details, go to sweetcottagecharm Ebay auction link at right…>
