Windsor Green Pantry Box,
c. mid 1800's

Presented here, a very fine little Windsor Green Pantry Box, c. mid 1800's. The condition is excellent as is the surface. It is in first paint that has acquired a great patina over time. The paint is 99% intact, showing only light wear from age and intended usage. According to June Sprigg in her book, Shaker Woodenware, "We frequently see oval boxes with single large fingers called "Harvard Shaker" on the market, but we have not seen proof that any such boxes were made by the Shakers in Harvard, Mass. or anywhere else. Neither have we seen a Shaker box on which the lid and side fingers point in opposite directions . . . "
The dimensions are: 5-1/4" long x 4-1/4" wide x 2" high.
