40% Off/Free Shipping! Highly Carved Norwegian Style Winged Cherry Tine
Like a piece of fine furniture, this is an elegantly styled bent wood box that has beautiful, graceful lines and rich color. It is entirely constructed with Pennsylvania black cherry emphasizing the beautiful grain and color of the wood. The wood is carefully steam bent and fastened together with split lacing in the style used by early Norwegian craftsmen. The cherry is a rich reddish-brown that will continue to darken with age. The corner posts are cut in a graceful arching wing style that is reminiscent of a Viking helmet. The notched lid provides additional interest along with the lacing that is set in textured bands. The lid snaps down tightly onto the corner posts, giving this type of box the nickname "snap box." It is a beautiful interpretation of the traditional Norwegian, Swedish, or Scandinavian tine.
The box is oval measuring about 10 3/4 inches long. It stands 4 ½ inches tall and the total height to the tips of the corner posts is 6 ½ inches. At the base the box is 5 3/4 inches wide while the lid is somewhat larger at 6 3/8 inches wide. The wood has not been stained but is being allowed to develop the natural color of aged cherry. It is coated with several layers of polyurethane oil to deepen and enrich the color and protect the wood. It is then coated with a high quality conservator's wax. The box is well on its way to developing the classic cherry patina that is so sought after and the higher than normal amount of carving on the box adds a special dimension to this beautiful piece.
