This lovely painted box is in the style of the traditional German bride’s box. There are four wood feet and the box is oval with a layer of gesso that is painted. The paint is lovely and original. The Germans have a long tradition of painted boxes and chests. The box is in very good condition with quite a few signs of age. There are numerous small chips and nicks consistent with age. The paint is darkened and has good patina. The inside of this box has also been painted, which was not usual for the traditional German brides box. These original boxes are very hard to find, as they tend to become heirlooms.
Measurements are: 9 3/4" by 14 1/2" and 4 1/4" tall including feet.
