A very unusual glass-door carved wall box (from Pennsylvania, I was told) with its original blue painted surface, paint-embellished carvings and 2 crests. The glass door swings open (to the right) and the glass insert is surrounded by crisp saw-tooth and zig-zag carvings. The crest above the door is carved with a multi-colored flower or sunburst, and both sides have multi-colored pinwheel carvings (2 on each side). The second crest is an extension of the back board and is used for hanging the box. The box is 6 ¾” wide and 8 ¾” high; height to the top of the hanging crest is 11 ¾”. The box is 3 ½” deep and with the door, overall depth is 4” Rich, mellow color on the sides and in the carvings and traces of the blue on the top and bottom. The box is in wonderful condition: there are signs of use, but no cracks, breaks, splits, etc. Some wear to the paint on the sides. The glass has probably been replaced. I am not sure what would have been kept in the box, but obviously something the family wanted to show off: endless possibilities for the new owner.
