      scotty got this for five bucks - its a buyers market not a sellers except for good signs and gas items. i have a little nutmeg oil lamp 1887 that use to sell for 200.00 bucks now i would be lucky to get 90.00 out of it

      These are a pretty common item all the way up through Maine. We kept kindling wood in ours.

      The one pictured is dried out and the slats are shrinking. If you want to preserve it swell them up.

      It is a fun conversation piece but not terribly in demand unless you get a city slicker who really wants one. A coat of boiled linseed oil, inside and out would do it a world of good. NOT RAW LINSEED OIL! Boiled linseed oil.
