19th c. Wall Pocket
A late 19th C. hanging wall pocket with an elaborately shaped and decorated body. The backboard is comprised of a single body of hardwood with a deeply scalloped profile featuring a standing horse situated above a heart shaped pierced hanging hole. A frontal pocket showcases a vivacious robin retaining its original red and black paint with a fine crackled surface.
The entire body is constructed of Mahogany with combination iron wire nail and small iron screw joining and retains its original chocolate brown paint with extremely pleasing surface qualities.
Remains in a superlative state of condition. Wonderfully attractive in form showcasing iconic qualities in folk art appeal. New England or PA origin. Ca. 1890. 13 3/16"T.
