DITTY BOX LID

Eastern Seaboard USA, 3rd Quarter, 19th century

Relief and chip carved pine with hearts, stars and eagles with multi stippled coloured paint finish.

 

Box dimensions including lid: W - 13", D - 6", H - 5 3/4"

 

It needed a box from whence it had obviously been removed, so I made one to set off this incredible example of folk art creativity. It is amazing that examples of this quality of work have not been found. This did not appear out of the blue and I'm sure with more research that other pieces by the same hand will be found.

 

Condition: Mounted on newly made base. No restoration to lid
