Lehnware Saffron Lidded Cup

Attributed to Joseph Lehn, Elizabeth Twp. Lancaster Co. Pa, c. 1860. This painted tulip poplar wooden cup is similar to other known Lehnware pieces illustrated in "Joseph Lehn and Lehnware: Nineteenth Century Woodworker in Elizabeth Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania" by Donald M. Herr. Lehn made most of his cups and lidded cups in a repeated sequence. The bas was dark blue, then a green stripe, red stem, salmon bowl and red border. The lids were green, the salmon with finials always painted dark blue. The condition is excellent. Height 5 inches.
