There is something so humble about an old wooden recipe box. This one is made with DOVETAIL JOINTS and brass hinges (SEE THIRD PHOTO). It has alphabetical dividers, but is missing the A. They are not original to the box because they are a little too big. Inside is the ORIGINAL LABEL, though hard to read. If you have really good eyesight and a good magnifying glass, you may be able to make all the writing out. What I can read says MEADS DIET MATERIALS. MEAD JOHNSON AND CO. EVANSVILLE, IND. COPYRIGHT 1936.

IMPERFECTIONS - Usual wear and scuffs on something this old. Hinges still attached well. No chips or cracks. Label is worn. WONDERFUL VINTAGE CONDITION.

DIMENSIONS - 5 1/4" across x 4" tall x 3" deep.

About once a month I am away from my computer for about a week. At this time I am helping my 84 year old mother that lives 130 miles from me. I try to keep my shop open at that time if at all possible. If you convo me or make a purchase and I do not respond within 24 hours, PLEASE CHECK MY SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT. I hope I will not cause you any inconvenience because of this. My customers are very important to me and your happiness is always my goal!

Thank you for looking at my shop. Please come back any time ~ my door is always open!
