Early Paint Decorated Box on Scarce Yellow Ground.....SOLD
New England, ca. 1800-1820. Original paint decoration on pine. Painted by a confident artist with free-flowing brush strokes, this box presents polychrome banding about sprigs, leaves, and berries, with the end-caps decorated with embellished fylfots. Cut-nail (square) joinery at the corners. Retains original snipe hinges. The box is in excellent structural condition without cracks. The lid is slightly domed from shrinkage. Decoration is in very good condition with edge wear as expected. About 11 inches long x 4 1/2 tall x 6 deep. The yellow ground and skill of the artist elevate this box.....Ex Ted and Carole Hayward; private collection.
