Have nothing in your houses that you do not consider to be beautiful or useful. French Antique 1890s Bentwood Oval Hat/Storage Box- Woodenware. A very large, oval shaped lidded hat/storage box from the 1890s with a fine patina and a wax finish. It measure 18 ½ inches wide by 13 ¾ inches and is 10 inches high. The lid is double-edged which makes it very solid and it fits well. Was relined by a local milliner about 20 years ago in white paper with a green and gold edge ribbon. The paper has a few very pale stains on the inside lid. The lid has a dark smudge which could be removed by sanding. Originally used to store wide-brim hats with feathers, it could be used for storage of many articles and looks stunning open or closed with the lid. Please read before purchasing.
