Antique Paint Decorated Marbleized Small Wooden Firkin

Superb Black and White Marbleized Paint Decoration

Circa 1880s: Measuring 4 3/4" high, this highly stylized paint decorated antique firkin is a delightful beauty. Marbleized techniques were popular in the mid to late 1800s, and the painting techniques were applied to a variety of objects to make them mimic the epensive marble slabs used on the fine furniture of the era. Finding any marbleized painted pieces from this era is a treat, and finding the whimsical decoration on this already hard to find small sized firkin makes it even better. The high quality of the decoration on this small top of the stack firkin points to work done by a professional sign, carriage, or furniture painter. Black paint swirls and drips into mesmerizing patterns. The lid is exceptionally crafted, and even the bottom is painted as no detail is left out. Picked from a kitchen on a buying call, this little beauty is absolutely fresh to the market, and we are very pleased to offer it for sale!
