Southern Walnut Wall Box
This early wall box is made entirely of walnut with lovely broken arch pediment and scalloped sides. It is finely dovetailed on all four corner with the base secured with very early nails. It is missing one ear on one side (as shown in photos). Although this could have been replaced I chose to leave the box in its original "as found" condition. Also, one of the back scrolls had been broken at some point and repaired. But it is the original piece and not a replacement. The edges are nicely worn from years of use. Measuring approximately 14" wide by 6 1/2" deep by 12 3/4" tall. A wonderful piece of early Americana!
