19th c. Pantry Box

A 19th c. pantry box in original surface.

Constructed of a bentwood oak body and lid and fitted with a pine wood top and bottom. A series of small wooden whittled pegs join the top and bottom.

The fingers of this pantry box are situated at the sides where ovular points extend to the most extreme point preventing the sides from cracking. Long slender fingers adorn the body with a faceted end and are reinforced with an iron forged tack.

Remains in excellent structural condition with quality color oxidized to a golden brown color. A carefully and sensitively crafted box boasting quality in construction and interesting dinger arrangement.

New England, likely Massachusetts in origin. Ca. 1825. 7"W.
