A most unusual, small New England Hanging Pipe Box with shaped top and a drawer, c. 1820. The box retains its original red painted surface. It is only 11 ½” tall, and 5” x 2 ¾”. It has a small drawer at the bottom and a lollipop finial at the top; the front and sides of the opening at the top are shaped. Although the box is not dovetailed, it is held together by early, tiny nails. Very good condition, with no splits or cracks; there is a small piece out of the base in the lower left back corner which is not noticeable when the box is hanging. Some use-appropriate wear to the painted edges, and the paint is tight and mellow. I have not seem this form pipe box in this small size previously. Out of a house in Northern Vermont.
