 Georgian Period Hexagonal Box


PhilShadfly Folk Art Gallery and Antiques is located in Port Dover, Ontario
This might have been a box for a small concertina, or scientific instrument, or such. It has a wonderful untouched surface and colour, and when you open it it is lined with a great old paper. Intricate finger joint construction and a beautiful original brass handle. circa 1840. 8 1/2" wide. 7"deep, 8" tall. You can see in the close up that some of the joints have opened a little over the years and a couple of nails have been added.
