12-Tin Pie Safe
The Pie Safe is a piece of Americana Furniture. Built from necessity for storing foods before modern storage methods, the pie safes were totally a utility piece. The tins were punched to allow air flow, much discussion surrounds whether the sharp side was placed inward or outward, but today, for safety reasons, we always place the 'grate' side inward.
