Patented in 1909 and manufactured in 1911, this is the quintessential counter top roll top tin bread box used by millions of American families at the turn of the last century. I have tried to sift through US Patent records to figure out the manufacturer but have had no luck.
Size is 13 1/2" left to right, 10 1/2" tall and 11" deep.
All original parts. It is still the original ivory color with original hand painted fruit and floral graphic details. Handles on the sides are in good shape and there are diamond shaped air vents on both sides.
The roll top part functions as it should and has a red bakelite handle. The inside of the bread box has slight rusting in places but not bad. No worn spots, dents or major scratches on the outside of the box. Great gift for that hard to buy for antique lover.
