Small Early 19th C. Wallpaper Box
Very good dome topped wallpaper box just 7” long. Marbleized paper over pine, with original iron latch, plate, lock and brass lid boss. Faceplate is attached with small rosehead nails, one of which at the lower right corner has lost its head. Paper coverage on the exterior is an amazing 90+%. The blue polkadotted interior paper is almost perfect. The matching cloth hinge may be an early replacement. 7”L x 3¼”H x 4”D. Ca. 1810-1820. A sweetheart!
