Brilliant American Flag Snuffbox.....SOLD
Northeast, ca. 1820. Paint on black-lacquered papier-mache. Reflecting the pride in early Americans in their young country. Possibly Hudson River school, perhaps representing an area near New York City. The patriotic meaning not in doubt, the flag boldly centering a harbor scene. Superb color and condition, the thin over-varnish finely crackled. About 2 7/8 inches diameter x ¾ thick. Special!
