Impressive Large Fingered Box in Original Windsor Green Paint.....SALE PENDING
New England, ca. early 19th century. Thick walled, with pine top and bottom; ash or chestnut side wall. Retains original very dry Windsor green paint. Narrow finger on lid, broad squared finger on body, a form I have seen several times but never of this unusually large size. The scale suggests use perhaps for textiles rather than foods (textiles in this period were often the most expensive of household possessions). About 17 1/2 inches long x 14 1/4 wide 8 tall. Superb conditions without cracks; clean interior. On top of a high-chest in a private collection for decades..
