Two Lidded Chestnut Candle Box

1800's candle box uses 2 lids on top instead of a slide lid.There was a black wash at one time;but that has faded.Measures 12" l x 5 1/2" D x 4 1/2" W.The first lid swings out to show an interior mortised lid.This double lid construction was probably an extra safety measure that would protect the tallow candles, rendered fat from sheep or cattle, from being eaten by mice and insects.The box is heavy for its size.The only thing that I noticed was the one side molding was reinforced by later nails.It is truly a gem of Yankee ingenuity.No other issues.Found at a Penna auction.

Price: $125 plus shipping.
