PIE SAFE

Pie Safe was a normal household item before iceboxes came into regular use and was an important part of the American household starting in the 1700's through the 1800's. The pie safe was meant to store pies, meat, bread and other perishables from insects and vermin. The pie safe was kept far from the wood stove as possible. It was even put on the back porch to catch the cool air.

A common pie safe is made of local wood - pine shelves - more expensive wood for the outside frame. It is about the size of a large bureau. Shelves are perforated and 18" deep. Safes have two hinged,front doors ventilated with pierced tins plates or screens. The sides are also ventilated with tin plate or screens. The holes in the tin plate are punched to produce an image such as an eagle, star, stylized tulip or geometric design.

Safes are freestanding , made with long legs to keep them away from the floor. Some are wall mounted or suspended from the ceiling. Most have a drawer usually above the storage area, but some times below.

We are offering a 6 Tin pie safe with two storage areas divided by one drawer with iron pulls. Top storage area has tin plates punched with a geometric design of  stars, triangles with circles. All tins are tight and in excellent condition. Storage areas close with iron and porcelain latches. Top storage area has two shelves extending the width of the safe,while the bottom has one shelf. The frame of the safe is topped with a simple cornice of crown molding, the sides are straight extending down to a straight apron and legs. The simplicity of the design brings forth the beauty of the tins. It is in excellent condition - an wonderful addition with lots of storage.

DRY SINK

A dry sink is a functional piece of furniture used up to the 19th century. They were the equivalent of modern day sinks without the convenience of indoor plumbing. It was essentially a wooden cabinet on which rested a water pitcher and basin. The top of the cabinet was recessed to prevent spillage and water damage to surrounding areas while washing or shaving. Dry sinks are usually made of pine but in wealthier homes they may be constructed from other woods. Pricier sinks had the recessed area on top lined with zinc or copper. Generally there is a storage area underneath. They were considered to be an indispensable kitchen accessory.
