19th c. Watch Hutch

Constructed of poplar wood with an eccentric fish tail shaped backboard with a pierced hanging hole and iron square head nail joining. Pine wood thumbnail shaped moldings are applied via tiny iron nails.
The door is fitted i to the framwork via two small iron nails integrated into the frame. A chisel cut cavity is on the backside with an irregular shaped cutout.
Retians a naturally oxidized coat of original red paint with fine surface elements. Replaced glass, a commonality amongst early watch hutches. Otherwise, excellent as-descended condition.
Displays beautifully with strong color and an attractive profile.
