Hand Painted Hanging Box "Griffin Order Box" 19th Century

The painting depicts a man, wearing a coat, in his cart with horse.. It is inscribed "J.E. Griffin's Order Box".

It has a slate interior, to write the orders. Inside the box, I found a popstcard showing a carriage, a photo of Mr Griffin I presume and an ad "Orin E Griffin Proprietor of  Annisquam & Gloucester Coach Line."(see photo).

Annisquam is a small waterfront neighborhood in the city of Gloucester, on the North Shore of Massachusetts.
