Oval Shaker Box in Applewood Green.....SALE PENDING
Northeast America, ca. mid-19th century. Four “swallow tail” fingers (one mostly hidden by lid). White pine top and bottom with probably ash sidewalls. Finger joinery by copper tacks. Original, extremely dry (never over-varnished) rich apple-green paint with complex surface being darker on the top from airborne particles falling more fully on the top than the side-walls. Smoothly burnished edges from handling at the edge of the top. Excellent structural condition with very clean interior. Stains on top as shown, and errant paint flecks. Dimensions about 9 x 6 3/8 x 3 1/4 inches. Provenance: New Hampshire collection, yet may have been made by the Sabbathday Lake, Maine Shaker community.
