OOAK ANTIQUE PRIMITIVE FOLK ART PIE SAFE PUNCHED TIN ORIGINAL RED YELLOW PAINT STARS. Up for sale is this amazing old pie safe. This is the real deal!!
It's old, it's Primitive and it's fabulous! 62.5 H x 42 W at the top x 17 D at the top. It's a rare, one-of-a-kind, folksy, punched / louvered tin pie safe. It has two doors on it with old Shaker style hinges as you can see in the pictures.
The doors work well and the right door has a little wood thumb turn at the top to hold it shut against the cabinet. This door then has a an astragal (wood thing on the left side of the door) that holds the left door shut. And there's a little play in the doors on the hinges and when they are closed. The doors are 3/4 thick. It's a yellow cabinet and is yellow on the wood parts, top and sides including the tins on the sides.
The front tins are a bold red. The tins are stars and each star has a circle around it.The front tins are in good shape considering their age. The right side tins have some rust on the bottom two tins and the bottom one is a little pushed in. On the left side they are in good shape with red paint undertones and some rust too. Inside there are three shelves and they are a grungy, worn and well-used white. The shelves are 1-1/8 thick. The back is made from 7 old wood tongue and groove boards. There are big square rusty nails all over the back. There's a big square nail coming down from the top where there is a mouse hole near the top and inside there's a metal repair.
We took a close-up of that for you. The top has some wear to it and we took a picture of it on its side. You can see that it may have been wet or something as the grain lifted and separated but the top is still strong. It's only on the surface and you can't see the top (unless you are really tall) when you are in front of the cabinet. The wood on the top is 1-1/8 thick!There are also some scratches, nicks, chips, surface rust, paint loss, alligator paint, crackle, hand rub wear, edge wear, paint marks and patina. These are all things you want to see in a true antique - don't you just love it?
