Folk Art STENCILED Oval Pasteboard BOXES, Antique Style, Oval Nesting Boxes, Mahogany, Black, Gold/Mustard Color Stenciling, Pair of Boxes


  • Details
    This pair of oval nesting boxes have a lot of folk art charm. Though the signature on the bottom of the large box indicates it was painted in 1995, the style of stencil art that is used goes back to colonial times. There was obviously careful effort put into giving these two boxes as closely as possible the look of being over 200 years old (unless of course the '95 date is referring to 1795 or 1895, which I feel is unlikely)

    I acquired the boxes with a group of decorative items from an estate. The label on the bottom of the box was attached when I acquired it, and marks on the smaller box indicate a similar label was on it at one time. The boxes seem to have been priced separately when new, but are priced together for one amount here.

    Large box = 5 1/4"l x 4"w x 2 1/4"h
    Small box = 4"l x 2 3/4"w x 1 1/4"

    Excellent vintage condition.

    Note - the top of especially the larger box is not as precise an oval as a machine produced one would most likely be indicating that the box itself could be hand made or made before machine manufacturing was the standard.
