Large English Metal Hat Box made in Wolvehampton England Circa 1910. This piece has a rustic aged patina with a worn copper coloured painted exterior. There is also some rust to the top of the lid. The lid opens and closes well.
The box measures 16" x 14" x 13" and weighs 2.8kg therefore shipping will be based on a parcel weighing 4kg to allow adequate materials to ensure safe transit.
There is no key for the box unfortunately and as you will see from the photos the front of the case no longer has its latch. Nevertheless it still makes a wonderful statement piece in the right setting.
Inside the case the navy blue enamelled paintwork has flaked on the inside of the lid but is in reasonably good condition inside the box itself.
Please note I do not try to make any additional profit on the shipping costs and use safe packaging at minimal cost to you as customer.
Please see my 5 star reviews for assurance about the care taken in packaging our goods also the prices paid / refunds given where necessary.
Elsewhere in my Etsy shop I have some upcycled pieces, some lovely vintage homewares and a new and developing line in vintage costume jewellery

I can also be found at Old Spitalfield's Antiques and Flea Market which is held most Thursday's on Commercial Street in the city of London, although as a 'casual' trader I'm not guaranteed to get a pitch every week.
Spitalfield's is an indoor market, suitable for all weathers. It's an excellent day out for lovers of all things vintage and antique!
Surrounded by an abundance of places to eat and drink, it's a fabulous place to spend some time.
