OOAK ANTIQUE PRIMITIVE 19th CENTURY WHITE PIE SAFE WITH PUNCHED TIN ORIGINAL PAINT. Up for sale is this amazing old pie safe. This is the real deal!! It’s old, it’s Primitive and it’s fabulous! It’s a rare, one-of-a-kind white, punched tin pie safe. It has two doors on top, a drawer, and two doors on the bottom. The upper doors have rusty and faded punched tins as you can see. The cabinet is mostly a white /off-white color but there are undertones of wood, and light green or blue. What paint is left is alligatored and worn. It measures 70.5″ H x 37.75″ W at the main cabinet by 14.75 D not including the top trim or knobs. There are cabinet and drawer pulls and all of them are brown and mushroom style as you can see in the pictures. The two on the drawer are the same but the others are similar but different. The upper one on the door has a washer on the inside as you can see in the pictures. On the cabinet doors, it has a piece of wood / thumb turn to hold the doors shut on both of the right doors as you can see in the pictures. The bottom thumb turn looks newer and has a newer screw. There are two shelves in the upper part and one shelf in the bottom part. The inside of the upper doors are white and tin while the bottom doors are tan painted wood. We don’t know the age of this pie safe but most of them are from before 1900. You can see the wear, age and patina on the wood, wow!! There are scratches, nicks, chips, surface rust, paint loss, hand rub wear, edge wear, paint marks, swirls, and patina. These are all things you want to see in a true antique – we love it!! The hinges are little rusty shaker style hinges and the upper right door, upper hinge has nails in it that get a little loose with wear and then the door gets a little loose. You can just tap these nails back in and you’re good for a while more. The sides have a wonderful whale tail boot jack and there’s a crack in the center of the tail developing. They are still sturdy but you can see the crack. The back is made of three boards and two battens and there is an old metal repair on the left side. The back has old rusty round nails and black iron spots from the nails on the wood. On the left side there’s a gap at the edge and we took a picture of that. The top is not painted and has warped a little toward the front on both sides. We took a picture of that also. It’s a very nice piece for your collection. Thank you for looking at this item.
