Green Painted Freehand Lettered Document Box
Here is an very nice 19th c. American painted document box, that measures approx. 19 inches wide by 11 inches tall by 14 inches deep. It is made of pine or poplar, and retains the original green paint with white lettering. It’s very neatly constructed with square cut nails, has breadboard ends on the lid to prevent warping. It retains the original brass hinges and latch hooks.
It is in excellent unrestored condition, clean and dry. Apparently made to hold papers pertaining to the " P.B. & Co." for the year 1877, the lettering is done freehand by an accomplished sign painter, showing great skill. I found this at a yard sale in Bridgewater, Massachusetts several years ago, and was told that there were several more just like it, (from different years) that had been sold before I got there.
Once again, the skill of execution indicates an accomplished professional sign & carriage painter's hand. If you enjoy 19th century sign painter's craft, then this box is a pristine example!
