Early Double-Tombstone Wallbox in Original Paint.....SALE PENDING
New England, ca. 1800. Appears to be maple with white pine. Double-tombstone back crest, similar to those seen in chairs of the period over a canted well above a long drawer. The paint is original, a dark oxblood red, with thin, crystalline original over-varnish. The drawer, with thumbnail molding, is dovetailed, the case nailed. The turned pull appears original. Minor imperfections. Very sturdily constructed. May be hung or placed on a horizontal surface. About 13 5/8 inches wide x 16 1/2 tall x 6 1/2 deep. Likely held candles in the well, and tinder material for lighting them in the drawer.
