I went antiquing with my friend Joy on Thursday and this is one of the treasures I came home with.
The ends are just hammered metal. Nothing fancy.
It is very clean on the inside. I wonder if it had a specific purpose or if it was just for decoration and storage.
It has a little chain on one corner so the lid stays opened.
The front has an English street scene. There is a pub on the left with a sign handing out front.
In my mind I am seeing it painted Annie Sloan Old White then rubbed with a little dark wax to bring out the pictures. Then maybe a little rub of gold. Any other suggestions? I would love to hear your ideas. What would you do with it?
Thanks for stopping by
