  PAINT-DECORATED, PENNSYLVANIA DOCUMENT BOX WITH ELABORATE MOLDINGS AND OGEE BRACKET FEET, 1830-50
Dimensions (inches): 8.25" tall x 14.25" wide x 9.75" deep
Description:
This paint-decorated, Pennsylvania document box, made sometime during the 1830 - 1850 period, has uncommonly beautiful form, with applied ogee bracket feet and many applied moldings in step-down profile. When it was discovered, the color was entirely black, but a careful cleaning revealed a rich ink blue ground, trimmed out with wide black bands and tomato red pinstriping. The black and blue coloration is highly unusual and the form is nothing short of exceptional. A masterpiece of both fine Pennsylvania cabinetry and folk art.
