This piece is amazing!

It is from my own personal collection and I have enjoyed it now for several years, but for financial reasons, I have decided to let it go.

It is an antique. It is over 100 years old.

Its footprint measures approx. 8.75 inches wide x 8 inches deep. It measures approx. 10 inches tall.

Such bins were found in old country stores and housed roasted coffee or tea. This was most likely a tea bin considering the Victorian lady on the front.

This piece has obviously seen better days, but I find it to be quite charming. It is definitely not for the perfectionist.

It is rusty, chippy, and even slightly dented in places. It is all original, including the knob.

The roll top still works and reveals an interior as rusty as the outside.

A lovely Victorian lady once adorned the front, but now only her nose, forehead and tiara are visible.

The whimsical star pattern along its edges is what attracted me to this piece in the first place.

It is really amazing. Sure to be a conversation piece.

Similar pieces are listed on Ebay for twice the amount.

I hope it finds a happy home... someone who appreciates it as much as I have.

This piece will ship insured Fed Ex ground.

Please feel free to convo me with any questions, as all sales are final.

Thanks for looking!
