This is a most pleasing piece of toleware folk art, most likely originating from Europe or maybe even Pennsylvania Deutsch. It is in the form of a short tower. The original paint is of deep navy blue edged with bands of orange/red - the top band having a saw tooth pattern. It incorporates two spice containers. When acquired, the top container included a number of peppercorns – but it would not be recommended to use them! The condition is very good for age with some loss of paint and interior discolouration, and slight rusting. Despite this, it presents very well and would make a lovely piece to add to a shabby chic or country cottage farm house kitchen, or it would feature nicely amongst a collection of folk art.
