Early Red Painted 9 Drawer Spice Chest in Original Condition, circa Late 19th – Early 20th Century. The Drawers still have Original Paper Spice Labels, some fully worn. In many instances when the drawers are opened another spice name is written on the side. In addition, the drawers have their Original Porcelain Pulls which add character to the piece, and the Back of the Chest is covered with a Tin Sheet. Construction throughout is with Small Cut Nails giving some guide to the Late 19th Century Origin. The Tin Sheet uses slightly larger nails with wide heads. The Original Red Paint displays Good Age; there is In-use Wear to the Edges and Top of the Chest. One minor mouse chew to the inside of a bottom box (see photo). It measures 14” in width, 7” in depth (8” with the drawer pulls included), and 11” in height. A Wonderful Example of an Early Wooden Spice Chest.
