You are bidding on a 19th century seed sorting board. During the 19th century seeds were sorted by size before they placed in the planters. If the seeds were too large it would clog the planters and thus cause delay to unclog the equipment. This is such a rare piece it should probably be in some agricultural museum. It measures 20 1/2" long, 16 1/4" wide. It is 5 3/4" high at the back and 4" high in the front. The tin has been punctured with the correct size the seeds can be for the early planters. This is hand made and as you can see be the pictures made with hand wrought square nails. I am selling this with no reserve.Please check my other auctions this week.
