Vintage bread box is in very good shape.It could also be a pie safe. The door opens and closes very smoothly and the handle locks perfectly. It does have a lot of character though, you can see the cosmetic imperfections in the picture. No dents. It is a mustard color I see this cute pie safe and I believe it is from a Southern Mama's kitchen where she would make a chocolate pie for Easter Sunday as my own Southern Nana would.
