I found this kitchen meal box at an farm auction close to my home in middle IL. The primitive antique is a great country piece of furniture with a chippy green surface. This early piece is made with large boards and the top is loose and not attached with hinges and never was. The case is divided in the middle to dispence flour and meal for the cooks in the home. The lower part has a lift down door. Never seen this before. The feet have some ware but are what I call a moon cut. This old pine primitive antique would date back to the 1870's. The sides near the top are mortised through the face. Just a really nice country piece of furniture that turely shows it's age.
Measures 30" tall by 39" long by 21" deep.
