Antique paint decorated folk art brides box in deep green with flowers and foliage in green, red, orange, yellow, white, blue and many shades of these. It is typical of Scandinavian boxes with oval lapped construction carved post on the ends that hold the lid tight and used by finger pressure to. Lid is painted and has a bentwood handle with split tails on each end to line up with carved posts. Lid is 9 3/4 inches by 4 3/4 inches wide and is beveled edged. Inscription inside says Miss Gracie Elizabeth and l think Erie. If so possibly made in Pennsylvania by Scandinavian immigrants. Lid looks lit white pine sides and bottom are a tighter grained pine. Perhaps made in the old way using similar woods and new world wood on combination. A common practice in Pa and all of America. Very nice box in very fine original paint wonderful polychrome color. Old split on lid is glued and very sound. All my items are fresh picked from local estates and small sales.
