Early American pantry box with original black paint and stenciling.
This is a wonderfully folky pantry box with original black paint and stenciling. The top is stenciled with a bold flower, done in bronze and metallic green, surrounded by metallic green leaves. Around the side of the lid is a hand painted pattern of metallic gold triangles and dots. The inside of the box is painted in salmon; where the paint is worn, it looks like there is black paint underneath.
The box is well built with thick sides and unusually thick top and bottom. The seams are held with handmade nails.
The box measures 6 1/2" diameter at the top, by 2 1/2" high.
Excellent condition with slight paint wear, mostly at the top and bottom rim edge, as shown in the photos.
