Mid 1800s Folk Art Hand Painted Brides Box Wooden Box Americana



This wooden bride's box is probably from around 1815-1835. It has the original paint with birds, a lion, rooster, stars, tulips and swirling leaf motifs. The hinges are original and intact. Part of the front lock plate is missing - you can see the close up in picture #3. This measures 25" long, 12" tall and 13.5" wide. The lid is slightly domed. The top sits unevenly on the base - you should be able to see how it is offset slightly in the pictures. The fabric strip that attached to keep the lid open is still there, but it is broken. There is some paint loss and discoloration. There is some light separation on the lid - you should be able to see that in the pictures too. For its age, condition is good. It is a wonderful piece and a classic example of early to mid 19th century folk art. Please look at all the pictures as they are a large part of the description.
