Paint Decorated Slide Lid Box

Small South East Pennsylvania highly decorated Hanging Slide Lid Box . . . hand carved and profusely decorated on all four sides and the chamfered sliding lid.  Wonderful relief carving of a distelfink, a traditional Pennsylvania Dutch folk art motif of a bird symbolizing good luck and happiness.  Made of American Chestnut, it is 8 1/4" tall and 4 1/2" wide.

 

It is in remarkably fine condition with very minor wear to the paint, mostly on the edge of the panel surrounding the bird. Nice dry surface with vibrant color.
