Antique American Pantry Box in Original Windsor Green Paint
Superb Oxidized Surface
Circa 1850-1880: This lovely oval bentwood pantry box iwith original Windsor green paint decoration, likely Hingham, Massachusetts, is made of maple and pine with tack and peg construction. It is in fine condition with minor loss on bottom edge and one missing tiny wood peg (both shown in photos) and features excellent original surface. At one time, someone had put a label on the lid, but we can only guess what the box once held. Measuring 2 5/8" high, 4 5/8" wide, and 6 3/8" long, this pantry box has great presence and graceful, undamaged finger joints and is sure be right at home in any collection of high quality early American antiues and country primitives.
