New York State or New England, ca. 1830. Appears to be fashioned from pine. For this piece, its all about the surface, as it retains its original varnish mottled and shrunken with the best of examples. Finial knob is turned as one with the lid. Label on the bottom reads: from big brick house, Main St. Albion, NY. And under the lid pencil inscribed "Hattie Clark". The latter being an old Rochester, NY name, while the brick house in Albion could refer to the Fischer's, who were antique dealers out of a brick house there for decades. Strong condition; no cracks. About 5 inches tall.
