19th c. Pantry Box

19th c. Pantry Box

An early pantry box in its original brown stained finish.


Constructed from bentwood maple, the body features an attractive lap joint with a deeply angled taper to an elongated thin finger and terminates with an arrow point end. The lid features a similar finger yet ending in a blunt end and chamfered. Small hand forged iron tacks reinforce each lap joint.


A heavily oxidized surface is present with rich color. Survives in an overall excellent as-descended state of condition with approprriate shrinkage and anomalies.


New England origin, likely Massachusetts. Ca. 1820. 8"W x 3 1/4"T.
