Primitive Wooden Carrier, Handy, Cutlery Tray Old Paint American Country
SALE PRIMITIVE WOODEN CARRIER, HANDY OR CUTLERY TRAY WITH OLD PAINT! Take a look at this very primitive American Country wooden carrier, handy, or cutlery tray in good old paint! You know how you buy some things to resell, but you don't really mind if you have to find a place to use them in your home? Well, that is the case with this great old primitive piece I bought in Seville, Ohio on a buying trip recently.
The dealer who sold me this carrier said it was from the late 1800's or early 1900's, and the paint looks to be original. As you can see, the paint is worn off in many places and the bare wood which looks like walnut to me, is showing through. When I bought this, I thought it was old "green" paint, but when I got it home and set it out with my other antiques, it looks more of a "taupe" or "putty" color. I supposed it's the light, but whatever you call it, I call it a great find!
This old piece measures 12" long and 9" wide. It is 4 1/2" wide from the inside counting the handle, but then you can add app. 3/8" to the height because of the base. This is well constructed and still in great primitive condition. It mixes well with your American country antiques, from cherry, walnut, oak, pine to painted pieces alike! I love mixing the New England furniture which may have a "dressier" finish with the old painted Primitive pieces.
Use this great carrier on your kitchen or dining table; fill it with autumn leaves or pumpkins, then bring on Christmas with it full of ornaments. When spring rolls around, it will be great to hold little pots of fresh flowers, Easter eggs, or you may even use it to carry your cutlery! What an original idea. :)
You won't be disappointed however you choose to use this great antique! It will be great with your baskets, sugar buckets and painted firkins too.
