Early Wallbox in Scarce Original
Northeast, probably New England, ca. early 19th century. Pine with original thin very-dry apple green paint. Joinery by early nails of irregular head shapes and sizes. A country box yet elegant in its simplicity and pleasing proportions, with double-tombstone backboard separated by a tab. The scrolled side-walls descend to a straight front enclosing a well. Small size, perhaps for spills or candles. The back unpainted with strong natural patina. May be hung or rest on a horizontal surface. About 13 ¼ inches tall x 5 ¼ wide x 4 ¾ deep.
