EXCEPTIONAL FOLK ART MEETS UTILITY: CHOICE EARLY PAINT DECORATED SPILL BOX



Northeast America, ca. mid-late, 18th century. Original patinated sage-green painted body, with unexpected rare polychrome pinwheel lollipop hanger of vermilion and cream, the sections separated by light scribe lines. Untouched dry crackled surface with exceptional character on a slender body rising to an elegantly incurved neck which sweeps upward to support the lollipop. The paint decoration, combined with the sophisticated design, raise this object to the pinnacle of the form. Joinery by early nails. About 12 inches tall x 3 wide x 1 1/4 deep. Unobtrusive loss of a portion of molding at the front bottom. If the form were silhouetted, that marvelous lollipop-big circle atop the slender neck would be good enough, but shine some light on it and not only is the form desirable, the vermilion and cream pin-wheel paint is delightfully surprising and fun, like a beacon from the 18th century.
