RARE EARLY 18TH C CT PINE SLIDING LID CANDLE BOX IN ORIGINAL GRUNGY RED PAINT

Description:

A VERY RARE EARLY 18TH CENTURY SLIDING LID CANDLE BOX, CONNECTICUT, CIRCA 1720-1740 IN NATIVE PINE. EARLY BUTT JOINT CONSTRUCTION WITH THE BEST OLD SMALL TEE HEADED NAILS ALL IN THE BEST ORIGINAL GRUNGY, OXIDIZED ORIGINAL RED PAINTED SURFACE WITH GREAT PATINA.

Fresh from an old collection. This great box has the original bevel panel cut sliding top.

The condition is remarkable. Only the most minor wear and tear and minor damage. The top is in one piece and has great shrinkage. It still fits tightly into the top groove.

But the best part of this box is in the MOST INCREDIBLE, ORIGINAL, DRY, OXIDIZED, GRUNGY, UNTOUCHED DARK RED PAINTED SURFACE. Nothing has been done to the surface.

6" long, 6" wide and 3 1/4" tall.

It exhibits only the typical wear and tear you would see from almost 200 years of use as I have shown in the photos.

FRESH TO THE MARKET.

Low starting Price and NO reserve.
