TRYING TO IDENTIFY THIS WOODEN BOX - Any ideas on here?
Is there a lining or anything inside...maybe for use as a humidor? The style is IMHO purely decorative.
a three-star-general's sugar bowl (someone like patton, maybe)
Is there a "Made in India" tag on the bottom? This looks like a 20th century (likely 1960s or 1970s) artistic interpretation of a British Army Shako as a trinket box, and the copper just screams India to me....
looks like a cookie jar
no lining at all just wood
In the setting you have it in ,I'm guessing ice bucket. I forgot to Welcome you
Hello Kazzia, welcome to the forums.
I also think it looks like an ice bucket from the 1960s-1970s era.
I agree with John42768 that it looks like an ice bucket.
Looks more like a cookie jar to me
Ice bucket from no earlier than 1970
A perfect accent to go along with some of those 1970's barrel furniture sets.
Ice Bucket. I believe at one time it had a plastic insert.
I would guess a humidor for cigars or pipe tobacco in the form of a military style shako. The stars are decorative not signifying rank.
I'm guessing tobacco humidor. However, your juxtaposition with food stuffs suggests that you think it's a spice container, which is certainly possible. I think it's walnut, but that only suggests that it was probably made in the midwest.
I agree, Ice Bucket, I seem to remember my parents having one similar and the bill of the cap held two glasses and a pair of ice tongs.
