$188.40 $235.50

The beautiful wooden Home Sweet Home bread box is in very good to great condition. The country folk-art "Home Sweet Home" theme is given the perfect amount of depth by the wooden front accent block. The distressed tan-brown and gunmetal gray colors along with the green window trim depicted on the front give the impression of a dormerless country-farmhouse nestled behind a white picket fence and corner shrubs. The heart-like cutout in the center of the arched back provides a wonderful reminder that Home Sweet Home is certainly where the heart is. Also, the red and gold sticker on the bottom shows that this gorgeous trunk-style wooden bread box was produced by "Good Wood" and "Made in Taiwan R.O.C.". Along with the gorgeous country folk-art theme, it is important to point out the high-quality construction of this wooden bread box. The front, back, lid, and sides are made of solid 3/4" (.75") wood - possibly Maple - that are fitted together with wooden dowel pins and metal staples. The sturdy paneled-bottom is also made of wood. The hinged trunk-style lid raises up and down on two horizontal metal pins - one on each end. When it is in the closed position, there are two gray foam bumpers for the lid to rest on. The two foam bumpers not only protect but they also soften the sound of the closing lid. Another great feature of this gorgeous wooden bread box is that it does not appear to have any stain on the wood. This would make the wood much easier to refinish at some point in the future.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, while the picture of the bottom shows some small worn pads near each corner, the bread box will actually come with four clear plastic bumpers to help protect other surfaces and keep the box from sliding.

There are a couple of slight stress cracks on the bottom edge of the wood - one is located on the inside edge of the front and the other is located at the bottom of the left side. Small stress cracks are sometimes common with aging wood - this is especially so with larger sections. Near the bottom of the left side and at the bottom of the back, there appear to be water marks on the wood. However, the wood has no damage and simply has the faint brownish shade on the grain. Other than this, there are no breaks, cracks, loose sections, or repair places on this gorgeous country folk-art bread box. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on this gorgeous wooden Home Sweet Home bread box - mainly in the form of distress and age. The box has been cleaned/wiped down with a damp cloth. However, we were careful not to "scrub" the box; thereby, removing its beautifully aged patina. Also, glue has been added between the front and sides to make sure it does not loosen at some point in the future.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous wooden country folk-art Home Sweet Home bread box are many. The kitchen countertop would be enhanced by the addition of this wooden folk-art treasure. Also, the separate kitchen-stand, cart, or bread rack would welcome this gorgeous bread box for its country folk-art charm and soft earth-tone appearance. In addition, the trunk-style design of the box would make it perfect for smaller toys and/or for storing nursery supplies.

The collector will appreciate this gorgeous wooden Home Sweet Home folk-art bread box for its very good to great condition, country folk-art charm, high-quality construction, multiple storage capabilities, and beautifully distressed and aged appearance.

The beautiful wooden Home Sweet Home bread box weighs 97.1 oz.

The gorgeous trunk-style wooden bread box measures 15.25" wide from outside to outside x 11 3/8" tall to the top of the back x 8" deep from outside to outside or 8.75" deep including the front wooden accent block.

The interior opening measures 13.75" wide from inside to inside x 6 9/16" deep from inside to inside.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
