Tiny, Rare Pictorial Paint Miniature Decorated Box
New England, likely Maine or Massachusetts, ca. mid-19th century. Miniature opposing finger box of just 2 inches in diameter, in dark-green ground paint, the lid decorated with a finely detailed polychrome pictorial image of a bird on a branch in the foreground, with a flock of birds flying over an autumn tree in the background. The entire box wall also decorated with autumn trees and flowers or marshland. This decoration elevates this box to likely a "one of a kind", certainly unique in my experience. For the advanced collector seeking the best of category. Discovered in a desk in Maine.
