Lot 0380 Details
Wonder Box. New Haven: Petrie & Lewis (P&L), ca. 1940. A quantity of silks is produced from a mirrored box (3 ¼ x 2 x 2") shown empty on all sides. With a "modernistic" crackle finish. Very good. Traditionally known to be one of two units manufactured with this finish - the first fulfilled at the request of Dell O'Dell, the second (offered here) a prototype made by Petrie before plans for production were abandoned at the demand of the originator, Lewis Davenport.
