Even though this box is simple in form the delicious paint really enhances the look by presenting a great piece. There are whispers of paint layers such as grey and blue that have accumulated through the years but the mustard paint is now the favored color as shown in image 11. I am not exactly sure what this box was used for originally but would make a great holder for wooden utensils such as long handled spoons and rolling pins because of the tall size. **The long handled spoons are offered separately in another listing.**
My date estimation would be around 1900 to 1920 as referenced by the round head larger nails as shown. There is minor wood loss near the front left bottom corner as referenced in image 4 as well as a piece of wood missing on the bottom near the right hand side as shown in images 18 & 20. The three pieces of horizontally positioned wood on the front and back locations incurred appropriate age related separation that adds lovely character to this box. </p><p>A couple of tight cracks can be found on the bottom near the right edge but are limited to this area only. There are a couple chips to report on the bottom edges as well as on the front left hand side near the edge as shown in image 7. A mishap with the paint brush that occurred has left splotches of paint on the inside areas as noted in the last set of pictures.
If you favor painted pieces this box should appeal to you in a big way as the warm mustard color is just delightful! Please note: Some of the pictures reflect indoor as well as outdoor shots. The indoor shoot picks up the warm and rich color while the outdoor shoot lends a lighter color. You will certainly have fun deciding what you would like to use inside the box. If the items of choice are too short you can always add scrunched up paper at the bottom until you are satisfied with the desired height. Enjoy!
Box measures 11” tall, measures almost 8 ¼” across (right to left) and is 5” deep.
