FMMThere really isn’t much more I need to say about Frye’s Measure Mill of Wilton, NH than to tell you that they have been “Shaker and Colonial box makers since 1858.”

About Frye’s Measure Mill of Wilton, NH: “Pause a moment, and imagine the smell of freshly planed wood. Listen to the rhythmic slapping of leather belts as they transfer power from overhead line shafting to antique water-powered woodworking machinery. Reflect back upon a time when craftsmanship was the existing norm and commercialism had yet to be exploited. Imagine a product dating back in design and style over two centuries, which has grown in value and beauty so that today it is sought after by collectors and enjoyed by country decorators while being handcrafted in an environment of historical significance. Welcome to Frye’s Measure Mill.”

Frye’s Measure Mill’s products are all glorious in that way when you discover something new that makes you say “I thought they didn’t make things like this anymore.”

Of all the fine products they make, I am drawn to Frye’s Oval Colonial Boxes: “Historically, pantry boxes were divided into four groups: large (up to 24″ in diameter) for butter, cheeses, and herbs, medium for sugar and meals, small for spices, and the tiniest – pill boxes.”
