Vintage Grain Box
Vintage is back in vogue. For more reasons, than just its aesthetic. These boxes won't break, they won't harm the planet either. All they need is a good scrub and shine now and then. All hail natural materials.
Spun by hand and made of pure brass, these boxes are great for storing grains, pasta, cookies too.
You can buy them as a set or individually.
Please note this is a remake of a traditional product with minor tweaks. It retains the rustic charm common in handcrafted artisanal products and may have uneven surfaces or edges. The products have been polished and may change color once received and after usage since metals get oxidized in the atmosphere. These products cannot be exchanged unless there is an obvious damage during delivery.

Brass oxidise on exposure to the atmosphere. In time, your copper/brass products may darken and begin to acquire a patina. Your product needs daily care to prevent oxidation. It should be washed with a soft cloth and a metal cleaning agent like Pitambari, lime & salt, or vinegar & salt or tamarind. Wipe dry immediately or else water residues will leave stains. Some waters cause dark spots on copper/brass. To remove, apply tamarind or vinegar or lime concentrate and leave for 15 minutes. Wash off with clean water.
