    My big exciting item for this week. It is large coal and or firewood box. 2 and 1/2 feet across by close to 2 feet tall it can hold a lot of firewood.
    It is covered with brass (could be copper) depicting scenes of medieval taverns and such. There are four different scenes with a bit of design on the corners. The back and inside are not covered and do show aged wood.
    This box is a bit unusual as it is not rectangular. It is 6 sided with a sloped lid.
    Firewood is messy and this will come in handy in keeping the bits and pieces in place. Plus it can store a fair amount of wood which will come in handy for when it rains or snows.
    From what I have seen these are from the late 1800s.

      Thank you very much nutsabotas6. It was for coal, firewood and tinder. That is the purpose. I think the brass covering is to keep sparks out.
