My dear, talented friend has lost her husband and experienced a health setback, so she has given up her home and moved away to live with her daughter. I have accumulated many of her works of art and am offering these pieces for others to enjoy. We’ve handled many hand painted pieces over the years, but until I studied Diane’s rosemaling, I hadn’t appreciated the great detail that goes into a piece!
This 8 ¼” long x 6 ¾” wide and 3 7/8” tall oval wooden box would be a great addition to your folk art collection or as a wonderful decorative piece. Done on a dark blue-green background, Diane has executed the most detailed floral pattern done in shades of gold, cranberry, dark green, white, and several shades of blue. The subtle shading is exquisite as are the raised white and reddish dots, which gives it texture. The pattern on the lid is outstanding; it is signed at the lower right Vera Diane ’84. The box has been used and it lost some background paint where this lid has rubbed it, but that just adds to the character of the piece.
This would be a great addition to your folk art or rosemaling collection or to use every day to keep small treasures in. Please contact us if you have any questions.
