Vintage Plaid Recipe Tin or File Box in Brown Plaid. This groovy recipe box is very cute. It can be used for recipes, or anything you want to store (rubber bands, paper clips, accessories, money). The box has very minor wear, the hinges are great, and is completely clean on the inside. The box measures 5 1/4 inches across the top of the lid and 3 1/4 across the narrow side.
