Pie safes were used in the days before refrigeration to keep flying and crawling pests out of the pies and baked goods. The cabinets were usually small and the doors and side panels, where other cabinets had glass, had screen or punched metal panels to allow for air flow. Ventilation was needed to keep the goods from getting moldy. Most of the time the tin or copper panels were punched in a pattern for aesthetics. Individual cabinet makers had their own patterns so there are many and varied designs on these lovely old pieces of furniture.
