Painted Wooden Bottle BOX.....SALE PENDING
Likely Pennsylvania, 19th century. Original dry red and gold paint on what appears to be popler. Lathe turned. Cleverly separates at a seam about one-third the height. Subtle wavy paint decoration in black. Stamped underneath, in part “DIST PA” (assumning PA is for Pennsylvania). Unknown application, yet unusual form and appealing. Perhaps used for "hiding" valuables "in plain sight" similar to faux-books, yet the stamp underneath may suggest a more specific intent. Superb condition and desirable surface. Solidly made. About 11 1/2 inches tall x 3 3/8 diameter at base. . .
