This is a rare find! It's so exciting to find items like this that have survived the depression.

It's a very old black recipe box that is so fragile that it's lid is starting to fall apart. It's made of a heavy cardboard material. The amazing part about this item is that it's full of the recipes collected during that era. Some are on handmade recipe cards, some are newspaper clippings, some have been cut out of boxes, one is a letter sent from a relative, some are hand written on sheets of paper and one is on the back of an official letter from the Treasury Dept. in Manchester, Iowa about war bonds. I would estimate the collection to contain over or near 100 recipes. The box also includes recipe dividers for Cereals, Eggs, Frozen Desserts, Desserts, Fish, Game, Meats, Pastry Pies, Preserves, Pickling, Salads, Sauces, Sandwiches, Vegetables, Whole Meals and an insert from Crisco with 30 recipes.

Some of the recipes are for: Almond Cheese Pudding, Miss Muffet Muffins, Meatballs, Peach Dumplings, Ice Cream Pie, Angel Pie, Strawberry Jam, Peach Marmalade, Never Fail Dill Pickles, Mock Chicken Sandwiches, Glazed Parsnips, Pepper Mangoes, Mustard Butter, Horseradish Butter, Apple Oatmeal Dressing, Oatmeal Bread, Apricot Upside-Down Cake, Raisin Tarts and Ham & Sweet Potato Rolls to name a few.

Please be advised that a lot of the newspaper items are in extremely fragile condition. You must handle very delicately. All of these recipes seem to have orginiated from Iowa.

The box measures: 5 1/2" x 3" x 3 1/4"
