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.
Condition: Perhaps some repainting (not evident). No damage evident.
