Antique Lift-Top Grain Bin with Drawers, Original Blue/Gray Paint, Dry Patina
New York, Circa 1860
Poplar and white pine


Antique Lift-Top Grain Bin with Drawers, Original Blue/Gray Paint, Dry Patina
New York, Circa 1860
Poplar and white pine, entire view

Great for kitchen storage…refuse receptacles, bulk storage

Displaying clean line and a lovely surface…the single board lid with applied moldings opens to
reveal two grain boxes, one larger than the other; the bins flank three short drawers neatly
sealed within a case joined with wood pegs. Some of the wood used in construction was
repurposed whereas the front panel displays a stencil reading, “23 & 25 Ellicott Street, Near
Seneca St., Buffalo. N.Y." A fragment of the name is visible, yet the identity remains unknown.
Additional information is found stenciled on the back of one of the drawers, "tacks,"
measurements of weight and/or volume, as well as "& Sons." Generally, very good condition
consistent with age and use, scatted paint loss to top; chip to wood at bottom left proper side at
base…not distracting.

(Dimensions: height: 28.75"; width: 42.5"; depth: 20.25")

A pine stave sugar bucket with two bands, each with tapered finger; swing handle pivoting on wooden pins with button terminus. The original black paint has a very nice patina; great condition.
