Painted Pyrographic Desk Box with Cardinal and Inkwell , Folk Art, Ca. 1890
Here is your chance to obtain a wonderful desk box with inkwell that has been handcrafted, decorated with painted pyrography and a nicely executed red cardinal. It is folk art in its finest form. The box measures 7.75 inches long by 4.125 inches wide and stands 4.75 inches tall. The whole surface of the piece is covered with a variety of pyrographic textured elements that are designed to add interest to the piece. Sitting on top is a cardinal carved in profile that is decorated with pyrography and red paint. In one corner of the top there is a place for putting an inkwell. We are providing an inkwell to sit in that space but it is not the original item. You might wish to find an inkwell of your own that better fits your tastes. The inside of the box is accessed by having the top swing to one side. This reveals a nice area for storage of desk detritus. The piece is in very good condition with the normal wear that is consistent with its age. For you collectors of folk art this is an unusual one-of-a-kind item that you do not want to miss out on owning.
