vintage Dutch enamelware, zout, sel or salt box, turquoise green with white lettering and wood lid
- - - - - - -
I absolutely adore turquoise enamelware and this old salt box is a cutie! The writing is Dutch so it's from the Netherlands or more likely Belgium, given it's more typically French shape and styling.
As you can see from the photos, it's been well-loved and shows its age in spots (see two photo). There is also a black mark on the front that I'm not sure how to get off without scratching the enamel (personally I'm not bothered by it - just adds charm :)
The original wooden lid is still included but one of the nails has disappeared so it's unhinged on its right side. Probably fairly easy fix with a small nail and hammer.
The inside is in less than ideal shape – quite rusty – but still water tight so it'd make a fun planter!
Size: 9.5" tall, 6.5" wide, 4.25" deep. Box part is 4.25" tall.
(color note: it's hard to capture the exact color but on my monitor these photos appear a bit on the light side – monitors are all different, though, so please except some variation from what you see on screen to when you see the actual salt box)
***SHIPPING NOTE: on my larger items such as this one, I will refund the shipping cost difference if I've over-estimated it by more than $2. If you're interested in additional items, please convo me your zip code and I'll be happy to calculate exact shipping costs.
