Item:265447506069RARE AMERICAN FOLK ART VINEGAR GRAIN PNTD/COMBED GRN/OCHRE WD BOX, LEATHER HNDLS. RARE AMERICAN FOLK ART NEW ENGLAND PRIMITIVE ANTIQUE VINEGAR GRAIN PAINTED, COMB DECORATED DEEP VERMILLION GREEN & YELLOW OCHRE SMALL WOOD BOX featuring AFFIXED LEATHER HANDLES & WROUGHT IRON LOOPED PIN LID HINGE with EARLY WALLPAPER LINED INTERIOR[Found untouched & covered with dust and silt in an early southern New Hampshire post and beam center chimney cape with attached barn](Circa 1825-1855)Early to mid 19th century American antique New England primitive vinegar grain painted wooden furniture & decorative wooden accessories DIMENSIONS: 17 3⁄4" Length x 11 3⁄4" Height x 13 3⁄4" Depth Weight: 9 lbs. 9 oz.DESCRIPTION:Very rare. Without its original hinged lid but with exceptional, early corner large, hand-cut dovetailed joinery. Unfortunately, at some previous juncture, someone took a hand scraper or hand plane and removed some of the paint decoration on the dovetailed areas of both painted short sidewalls. The painted front sidewall remains largely intact but is now missing its original metal, keyed lid locking hardware. One of the handcrafted iron, looped pin hinges that would have held the lid in place at the rear is still present, as is one of the affixed side leather lifting/carrying handles. No attempt has been made to replace the lid with another or to 'in-paint' the areas of missing paint where a less-informed soul removed some of the original and now nearly 200 year-old paint decoration on its corners. The real story here though is with its vinegar grain painted exterior, with its exuberant, lovely, squiggly vertical brush strokes that resemble a mop dipped in green paint and dragged right and left down its sidewalls over an ochre background. Still with its original period paper wallpaper lining its interior and still largely intact, although with some minor to moderate staining in places. Honest. Authentic. 100% original and untouched. Estate fresh. Crazy good paint. Exceptionally rare. An extraordinary, genuine, early to mid 19th century American Folk Art artifact and example of early New England primitive painted furniture and paint decorated wooden accessories. Wonderful. It may not be 100% intact or perfect but it remains largely untouched and an honest, now nearly 200 year old New England primitive artifact. Almost as old as dirt. Found in southern New Hampshire.
