Paint Decorated Initialed Box.....SALE PENDING
New England, ca. 1840. Original paint with deep-forest green ground, personalized with black GW within scrolls, the initials likely those of the owner yet perhaps as homage to Washington, who was venerated well into the 19th century. Appears to be pine top and bottom with ash or chestnut side wall. Straight lap-joint held with copper tacks. Shellac over-varnish. Just 3 inches diameter (round) x 1 3/8 tall. Excellent condition.
