Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This box was probably used to keep salt in. Back in the 18th century salt came in blocks or chunks, not the granules we are used to today. Salt was valuable and keeping it in a box helped reduced waste. Also houses would often have been cold, and storing salt in a box would have helped stop it getting damp.
Average box height about 7 inches (18cm).
