The gorgeous antique wooden rooster folk-art pantry box is in great condition. It is important to note that "condition" in this listing refers to the decorative appearance and its ability to be used as a box. The rustic patina on the nail heads along with the distressed and aged appearance of the wood, and the inconsistencies of the accents in general add a load of priceless character to this gorgeous wooden box. While it is hard to be for certain about the age of this box, the amount of surface-rust on the fasteners along with their surrounding darker shadow-like stains are very consistent with pre-1900's boxes. Also, the beautiful rooster and heart folk-art on this box was most likely added sometime later - circa 1960's - 1970's. The gold background color of the accents appears to have been painted first and then covered with a medium oak-like stain. After the finish cured, the brighter colors of red, green, and yellow were applied giving beautiful depth to the folk-art. While it is hard to say how extensive was its coverage, a purplish-blue or blueish-purple ink-like color/wash appears to have been used around the edges and crevices to further enhance the incredible details on this gorgeous box. The same color/wash was used on the underside of the lid and on the bottom of the box. Primitive boxes similar to this one were used for many different purposes. However, two of the most common primitive uses for these large round wooden boxes were to either hold cheese or were used as pantry boxes. The brown burlap on the interior floor with its accompanying trim is a good indicator that this box was used for holding dry items such as sewing supplies and/or keepsakes.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual.

There is warping, wear, and inconsistencies in the wood - mainly in the trim pieces. Also, there is a break along the bottom edge of the trim band that was obviously there before the box was finished as the edges of the breaks are also finished. Other than this, there are no breaks, loose sections, or repair places on this gorgeous Antique wooden box. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub places on the box - mainly in the form of distress and aging patina. The nail heads have a very old surface-rust patina. Also, there are some stress cracks on the box - mainly on the upper and lower trim pieces. In addition, the brown burlap on the floor of the interior along with its accompanying trim appears to be very clean and fully intact.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous antique round wooden pantry box are many. The entryway or dining room would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeous wooden rooster folk-art box. Also, the living area or country kitchen would welcome this antique wooden box for its stunning primitive rooster folk-art appearance. In addition, the growing folk-art collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this gorgeous wooden treasure.

The collector will appreciate this gorgeous antique wooden pantry/cheese box for its great condition, distressed and aged patina, primitive rooster folk-art charm, and overall beautiful appearance.

The gorgeous antique wooden rooster folk-art pantry box weighs 70.2 oz.

The large round wooden cheese/pantry style box measures approximately 7 1/8" tall to the top of the lid x 16.25" wide across the lid from outside to outside x 16.5" wide across the lid in the other direction from outside to outside.

The round wooden bottom section measures approximately 6 9/16" tall x 15 5/16" wide across the rim from outside to outside x 15 1/16" wide across the rim in the other direction from outside to outside x 15 9/16" wide across the base from outside to outside x approximately 15.75" wide across the base in the other direction from outside to outside.

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:

If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.

***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.
