RARE SHENANDOAH CO., SHENANDOAH VALLEY OF VIRGINIA,

Description
RARE SHENANDOAH CO., SHENANDOAH VALLEY OF VIRGINIA, FOLK ART PAINTED-DECORATED BENTWOOD OVAL BOX, yellow pine and basswood/linden, covered form of lapped construction secured with iron wire staples and wooden pins, stylized polychrome floral decoration on a muted salmon ground. Original surface. Reserve. Attributed to the Barb family of Shenandoah Co., VA. Circa 1820. 6 3/4" H, 17" x 11".
Very good overall condition with minor scattered surface wear and discoloration, slightly heavier to cover. Bottom board cracked, small crack to body at base of one end, and very minor losses to edges of base and cover.
Literature: Parallels Garvan - The Pennsylvania German Collection at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, p. 13, fig. 15; and Little - Neat and Tidy, p. 99, fig. 103. See Pook & Pook - The Pioneer Americana Collection of Dr. & Mrs. Donald Shelley, April 20-21, 2007, lot 739 for an example signed and inscribed by Jacob Barb.
Provenance: From an important Virginia private collection.
Purchased from Don Walters.
Ex-collection of Walter Himmelrich, Lancaster, PA.
Catalogue Note: The present box is from a small, but important group of paint-decorated boxes and chests produced by multiple generations of the Barb family in Shenandoah County, Virginia from the 1780s to the 1830s. Attribution for the group is based on the box formerly in the Donald Shelley collection, referenced above, which bears the inked inscription “Jacob Barb This 24th day of August 1831”. The group currently consists of nine oval boxes, in three sizes, and two yellow pine chests without drawers. Two of the boxes reside in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Colonial Williamsburg. Both were originally attributed to Pennsylvania, but have now been correctly reattributed. Four of the other boxes descended directly in families living in Shenandoah County. Both of the chests also carry Shenandoah County provenance. Research in preparation for an article on this group is currently underway.
Condition
Very good overall condition with minor scattered surface wear and discoloration, slightly heavier to cover. Bottom board cracked, small crack to body at base of one end, and very minor losses to edges of base and cover.
