This is a very attractive little folk art box, mustard in colour and hand painted with a floral design on the lid with scrolling and dot detailing around the bottom of the box. The oval shaped box is held together with old copper rivets and tiny wooden pegs. The painting has an aged craquelure (fine crazing) which adds to the appeal. The lid fits tightly on the base and there is some lifting of the varnish between the two sections – otherwise, this piece is in very good condition for age and would grace any collection of lovely folk art.
Length 6.75 ins (17.2cm) x width 4 3/8 ins (10.8cm) x height 2 ins (5cm). Weight 126 grams. This item appears in my book, ‘Antique Boxes, Inside & Out” on page 64. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $37.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
