Scratch Decorated Comb Case, Sheaves of Wheat, Mid 19th C.

If you collect folk art then you will love this early wooden hanging comb case with fine line carving. It is constructed of pine primarily with square brads, although there is some evidence of glue used to strengthen some of the joints along with some later nails added to strengthen the piece. It is beautifully decorated with fine line carvings of sheaves of wheat. The design is a real eye grabber. Condition is quite good although some of the joints have opened up a little bit as is expected with the movement of wood over the years. The surface is lightly finished with varnish that appears to be original. On the back there are two modern hanging eyes used to string a wire for hanging. There are also two filled holes at the top edge that originally contained some sort of hanger. The dimensions are 8 ½ inches tall, 7 3/4 inches wide, and the comb case sits 2 7/8 inches from the wall. This piece would look terrific hanging on your wall perhaps filled with dried flowers and you will most likely never see another one like it.
