A fine country-made Welsh oak salt box / wall box. Good patina, nice rich colour with lovely medullary ray patterning.

Back in Georgian times salt would have been in blocks and chunks, rather than granulated salt we are used to today. Salt boxes were used to store salt to keep it well away from cool damp surfaces so it stayed dry.

Box height approximately 9 inches (23 cm).
