Paint Decorated 19th Century Trinket Box

$1,200.00 USD

This diminutive trinket box (6 1/4" by 4 1/8" by 3 1/16" tall) in oak, has cut-nail construction with a peg-hinged top and applied internal lock with triangular escutcheon.

The decoration is bold horizontal floral designs on the top and four sides in red, green, yellow and white against a black background.

Condition is very good with some paint scuffing to the front, left.  The surface is original and untouched.  The lock latch-plate and key are missing.

This box dates to the early to mid 19th Century and is likely northern European.  The style is similar to, and may have influenced, Jonas Weber (1772-1865) of Lancaster, PA.

The price includes shipping.
