This 2-level circa late 1940s vintage wooden silverware storage chest was made for Oneida Community flatware patterns but of course it can be used with any set. It will hold silver service for 12 plus serving pieces. The chest has two anti-tarnish cloth lined sections to store your flatware, one in the main compartment under the hinged lid and the other in a pull-out drawer below.
The box is probably stained walnut or maple, quite heavy. The green lining fabric is soft with a thick flannel-like nap. Pleated white satin covers the top half of the lid interior where knife blades rest. A foil label in the corner of the top section calls the green lining Kenized. Another foil label below the hinge reads "Tudor Plate by Oneida Community Silversmiths". The 16 by 11-1/2 inches by 6-1/4" high chest has a number of scratches and scuffs, mostly to the lid and handles. The inside is in excellent condition with no stains, tears, or damage.
