PRIMITIVE AAFA 19Th C THICK WALLED BAIL HANDLED BLUE PANTRY BOX

HERE WE HAVE A WONDERFUL CIRCA 1800s THICK WALLED BAIL HANDLE PANTRY BOX WITH RARE HARD TO FIND COLONIAL BLUE PAINT. MEASURES 9 1/2"W x 5 1/2"H. CIRCA MID TO LATE 1800s THEY DON'T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS. PAINT IS VERY VERY OLD AND DRY AND HAS GOOD OXIDATION. THE INSIDE WAS PAINTED WHITE AT ONE TIME BUT HAS YELLOWED OVER TIME. THERE IS SOME TYPE OF LETTERING ON THE BOTTOM FROM LONG AGO THAT IS VERY HARD TO READ, AND ADDS TO THE CHARM OF THIS PIECE. CONDITION IS VERY GOOD FOR AGE TOP AND BOTTOM ARE TIGHT. THE RIM/BAND ON THE LID IS JUST A TAD DARKER WITH A LITTLE MORE OXIDATION. NO APOLOGIES HERE. JUST A WONDERFUL LOOK TO THIS ONE AND IN THAT RARE HARD TO FIND COLONIAL BLUE. PLEASE VIEW ALL PHOTOS CAREFULLY WITH THE ZOOM FEATURE AS THIS IS THE BEST METHOD FOR DESCRIPTION. SHOWING A LITTLE LIGHTER IN MOST OF THE PHOTOS. PICTURES DON'T DO THIS ONE JUSTICE.
