This small hanging pie safe was found in Alabama in 1981. From it's construction it looks to be from the 1870's. It is made of pine wood, and held together with hand made square nails and pegs. There is a punched tin panel on the front of the door. This allowed the pies or whatever else to cool without bugs getting inside. Inside are early American redware plates, hand carved wooden butter molds, early baskets and a hog scraper candle holder.
