It has an open till inside and still has its original snipe hinges. It has applied molding on the lid and on the base. This little beauty is not marked but appears to have originated in the mid Altantic area and dates to c. 1840. 26 1/2" wide x 10 5/8" deep x 10 1/4 high.
LIDDED WALL BOX
This is a most unusual, lift-lid wall box that we were fortunate enough to find in Ohio. It retains its original red paint with gold trim and pinstriping, decals on all 4 exposed sides, great free hand paint decoration on the back board and the original 2 pairs of hinges on the lid. In addition to the hand painted gold and black decoration, the back board has a most unusual profile. This wall box appears to be made of poplar. It probably originated in Ohio and dates to about 1870-1880. 12 1/4" wide x 7 7/8" deep x 8 7/8" high.
This is a unique 2 seat bench with a Heart Cut-out on the back in the original sage green paint and woven seat. The turner who made this chair pulled out all the stops in conceiving and fabricating this bench. First, the front and back posts are nicely turned with feet, finials, and sets of rings. Second, the box stretchers are much more substantial than expected and they have turned medial seat supports on the front and back of the bench. Third, the back is topped by an arched board that is centered by a large cut-out heart. This board sits atop a stile with a row of 13 turned spindles. Finally, the shaped arms have bold circular hand holds. This most unusual bench dates to c. 1880-1900. 40 1/2" wide x 24 1/4" deep x 35" high.
