Lot 0369 Details

Description
Probably the nicest miniature paint decorated blanket box I have ever handled, this dovetailed example retains its original salmon sponge swirl decoration, initials hand-done in the lid, a till, original hinges and lock (no key). The box measures 11 ¼" x 7 ¾" x 6" high. Dating c. 1840-1860, the box was found in New England, but its origin is unknown, possibly Pennsylvania. All 4 sides and the lid have frame lines in the paint decoration and the initials on the lid ("H M") appear to have been done with a finger – like a child would do finger painting. The dovetailing is tidy and precise and the box is in excellent condition. Paint is virtually complete with only some minor edge rubbing, and there are no cracks, breaks, rot, etc. One thin sliver of wood on the back side of the lid(near one of the hinges) has been replaced, leading me to suspect that there was an "oops" with the top at some point, and one screw from one of the hinges is missing. I am happy to provide additional photos if needed.
