UNUSUAL WOODEN URN WITH LIFT TOP COVER
Age. More than 100 years old
Composition. See below
Size. 21 ½” high x 10” wide/deep
Comments. Made of black walnut this Victorian era urn has a removable top with a fancy finial. There is a round piece of wood into which a dowel from the top fits into which also has a thin wood round shelf. It appears it may have had more of these round shelves that were attached to the round piece of the interior. It once had a lock which is now missing leaving a small hole on one side and its upper portion is still attached to the top. The woods original finish has wear, shade variations, some small scratches/scrapes and has darkened over the decades. This item is in sturdy shape with no apparent breaks having normal use wear, has wood wear, small, shallow wood dents, needs re-gluing and has some small missing chips at the bottom of the turn stem as seen in our photo. We believe that the trays were somehow attached the center shaft and may have been used to house glasses, alcohol or other valuables. Need some work but when done it will make an interesting item for your Victorian decor.

To save our bidders time, our system is desgined to accept "maximum bids."
A "maximum bid" is the highest bid you are willing to place on an item.
Our system will automatically bid for you, in the required increments, up to your "maximum bid."
The initial bid placed for you will be only as high as required to outbid any current bidders should your "maximum bid" be highest.
This means that you will always pay the minimum price required to "win" an item, and not necessarily your "maximum bid"
**NOTE: In the event that your maximum bid ties a previously left maximum bid, the previously left maximum bid will prevail.
**If you are the current High Bidder, entering another "Maximum Bid" will simply adjust your current "Maximum Bid" to the new amount providing it is higher than the "Current Bid". You are allowed to increase or decrease your "Maximum Bid"
