Superb Paint-Decorated Pennsylvania Spice Box
One of the best paint-decorated boxes I’ve had in quite a while. Poplar and walnut dovetailed case with poplar interior dividers that were reconfigured within a few years of when it was made. Original dry red paint with black decoration on all sides as well as corner spandrels and dot elements on the lid. Paint retention is virtually 100%. Extended one-board base with molded edges and the distinctive feature of seven carved finger notches on the slide lid. Three tiny brads added to reinforce each side rail. Ca. 1810-1820. 12”L x 8”W x 4”H. A gem!
