This is a discarded storage bin that was found.
Does anyone recognize this?

My vote would be for a vegetable bin. The two ‘drawers’ should tilt out on a pivot.
Whatcha gonna do with it?

Yep, potatoes and onions bin. Maybe apples and some other fruit. Screens provide fresh air.

Man! That is cool! IMO, do NOT restore this. I might lightly wipe it down with a damp cloth and then put a couple of coats of Johnson’s Past Wax on it… And then kick back and enjoy your find! Well done!

Those were referred to as “potato bins” in my part of the country. My wife still uses one. The lower bins are typically used for onions and other vegies or fruits.
