This 19th century American primitive Treenware Box is quite nice with original paint and berry design. The design leads me to believe this may be a Pennsylvania piece. The patina is aged smooth. The lid has a handpainted green ferny and red berry design on top; there is a black leafy design worked into the background. Around the rim edge of the lid is a string of black wave lines and dots; the box carries the same design as found on the lid. With spices so dear a price back then one needed tightly closed containers to keep spices or other perishables fresh and dry. Lid fits secure. Measurements are: 5 inches in diameter by 2 ¾ inches high; it is sturdy and in good age related condition. The box is quite lovely; a nice find for the serious collector.
