This is a wonderful example of a folk art bale-handled pantry box. The pantry box is a nice size, 11 3/4 x 7 1/4” tall, for beautiful display. The black paint is original, as is the polychrome flowers and foliage. The box also has paint on the inside, which most likely occurred at a later time. The box is in very good condition with only a minor crack, a small divot peg pop and a small piece of band missing on the top. The box also retains its original varnish that has oxidized and hardened to create a nice crazing/alligatoring effect. Ca. mid-19th century.
