1860s Antique American Wallpaper Box

Unusual size and shape with wonderful seaweed decoration

Circa 1860s: Collectors of antique wallpaper boxes will appreciate the unusual shape and size (9" wide, 2.75" tall, 6.75" deep) of this 1860s Civil War era wooden wallpaper covered box. We love the wonderful muted pallette with its seaweed like decoration in golden ochre and blue printed paper cover. The inside is lined with marriage certificate to be used in 186_, along with an etching of a horse drawn cannon. The newspaper lined bottom even retains a column on capital punishment taken from a New York paper. Solid condition and unusual size make this interestingly decorated wallpaper box an attractive and desirable piece of mid 19th century country Americana.
