oday we are happy to offer for sale a great antique Americana wood box! This beautiful piece dates to the 18th century and is nicely crafted and detailed. The box features a low, rectangular-shaped body with four short feet and rare dovetailed and pegged construction. The interior retains most of its ebonized black paint. There are scratches on the interior of the lid consistent with a knife or blade which is perhaps a clue to the original intended use of the box (if you can figure it out let us know!) The box presents well and is in very good antique condition, with minor wear and patina commensurate with age. The lid is slightly warped, and the bottom is slightly shrunk from sides of box. This handsome box will make a great addition to any Americana collection…Fresh to the market!
Dimensions: 9-3/4″ in length, 7″ in depth, 3″ in height
