    Antique pie safe, purchased in Virginia. The metal panels on this pie safe are unique - instead of having ragged holes punched in to make a design, the design is molded or sculpted into the metal. The design includes a sort of angel or cherub. Maybe these are old ceiling tiles from a Victorian building?

    Approximately 56 inches tall, 33 inches wide, and 12 inches deep. Shelves inside have spaces of 10.5 inches tall by 31 inches wide. Shelf on outside bottom is 8.5 inches tall by 31 inches wide.

    I'm not sure how old it is, but it is definitely something made by a "primitive" craftsman long ago - probably made by some farmer for his wife. It is NOT a modern reproduction. The dents & dings and worn parts are real.
