New England, likely Hingham, Massachusetts, ca. 1820-1840. In early dry crackled dark green paint. The lid with carved pinwheels and stamped stars, the underside with beautiful engraving of the three trees, a prominent theme throughout history. The box has lost about 1/4 inch of height around about 2/3 of its uper perimeter (under the lid) such that the lid can only rest on the base, not fit snugly about it. About 5 1/4 inches long x 3 3/4 wide x 2 tall.
