Early Pantry Box

Early Pantry Box

An early 19th c. round pantry box in original light buttercream colored paint.

Construced of a bentwood maple wood body and joined with a lap joint. The lid follows in similar fashion. Both feature tapered fingers with chamfered blunt ends and are secured with exceptional oversize hhand forged nails with 4-way flowered heads.

An obscure carved wooden pin is inserted into the body adjacent to the lower finger on the body serving an unknown purpose.

Remains in overall excellent original condition with an extremely fine painted surface showing depth in paint strokes. An above average box for the collector seeking the early aspect of treenware with emphasis on historic surface characteristics.

Virginia origin. Ca. 1800. 6 1/2"W.
