Tool Carrier Tray
SPECIAL! Just the best antique
rustic primitive carrier that we have seen in many years!
Made of pine this has a rich natural
color and shows plenty of old use and wear.
We've called this a Carpenter's Tool
Carrier, but frankly, it could have been used by any tradesman who needed
to carry his tools around. It's at least from the 1850's and possibly
The early tradesman that made it certainly
had a good eye for design. This has a wonderful shape, a curve to the
center portion of the sides and canted panels at both ends, so well proportioned.
There's a center divider with a large double opening for the handle
which is quite unusual and enables a really good grip. From the top of the
high handle the shape slopes gently out to the sides, just look at it, it
was beautifully crafted!
Both ends are partitioned having two
small boxes each that measure 2-1/2" x 4". The center section
having 2 longer compartments each measuring 13-3/4" x 4". Lapped
and nailed construction, old square nails along the sides and early screws
on the base. It was well constructed very sturdy and strong and wonderfully
Enjoy it just as it is or fill it with
your small cooking utensils to use in the kitchen or put folded linen napkins
forks and knives in it and it will make a handsome addition to your Country
Dining Room. These lovely old carriers also make great sewing caddies,
perfect for holding your threads and
