Very Old 1800s Tin Pie Safe Cabinet Bakery Store Countertop Bread Cake Cupboard:
SIZE: Approx: 15" long. 10 5/8" high, 10 3/8" deep, as shown in 5th picture, above.
Authentically OLD, old Bakery or Bread Store COUNTERTOP PIE SAFE CABINET, in the original Jade-green Color, but now very faded.
This all Metal, Tin? Pie Safe could be Carried around, holding 3 Pies, by the Handle on the top, It could then be set on the Counter, on the 4 BUN FEET, and the "Door" opened to display the Pies. Standing on the feet, it stands about 16" high.
You could also set the Safe on the one side, which is a bottom, and it then becomes a Chest-like containter, with the latch on top, and the LID opening upward. Yes, it was made to be Used or displayed in 2 ways.
2 of the Shelves in side are REMOVABLE, so you could store Bread or a cake in this, too.
I have never seen another like this, it really is a cool, and very unusual piece. Well made, with Lapped tin joins on the sides. Hinges are PRIMITIVE, and appear to be tin squares bent around small steel/tin pins in the door. Door opens smoothly, easily, and latch works fine. Handle is good and secure.
I would guess that this was a locally made item from a small tin-shop, not a mass-manufactured one, and there can't be very many like this
Nothing has been done to retouch this, other than a gentle wash to remove surface soil. I think this would look fantastic with a coat of paste wax. No "antiquing", no repainting, no repairs, nothing. It is just as it appears, with what age and use has done to it. You can see all the FADING that has occured, as well as chipping, some DENTS (couple large, noticeable, but you can have them pounded-out)
CONDITION: Overall, good. Strong, Sturdy, all sides secure, with much wear, borderline SHABBY, I guess, but an AUTHENTICALLY OLD, OLD Cabinet that will be great to use, and great for display. Please see my other items listed. .
