Crafted of cast iron, this offertory box is a charming relic of the church. Generally found at the back of a church to collect offerings for the poor, these boxes were once a staple of the church environment. The religious artifact is masterfully crafted in a hexagonal shape that is both aesthetically beautiful and highly functional. "Offerings for the Poor" lettering graces the front, while a golden chain keeps the entire structure secure. Many such pieces have been lost to time, so to find an original alms box in such wonderful condition is truly outstanding.
