Set Of 3 Thomas Annett Factory Boxes Circa 1859-1903

Here is a great stack of 3 pantry boxes made by the Thomas Annett factory of East Jaffrey, New Hampshire circa 1859-1903. While only the large box lid is stamped: THOS ANNETT. E. JAFFREY N.H., all 3 boxes are constructed in the same manner with the same nails, method of construction, and construction tool mark found inside. I am confident they were all made by the factory. Perhaps, only the top lid was marked as the others were housed inside the large box.

The paint is a wonderful deep blue. The paint is dry and old with great age appropriate patina. I am unsure if it is original to the boxes. Could it have been put on in the 1930's? Maybe. The boxes could have been made as late as 1903. I question the originality of the paint only because there are some paint splashes on the inside of the boxes.

The condition is excellent. They are sturdy and the lids fits snugly. The inside is clean. I found them at an estate sale of 2 elderly spinster sisters. Everything I bought was so well cared for and in "mint" condition.

These boxes are just beautiful and would be a wonderful addition to any primitive collection.
