Product Description:  Folk Artists in the earlier years often used found materials to create a form of utilitarian style art.  Often very visual and colorful, reflecting as an expression of their daily culture life, each individual work of art is hand-crafted making each one unique and special.  

This early example of a Pennsylvania Folk Art decorated, flat-top box with flip-up lid is constructed of wood with box jointed corners and original, early paint. Lovely tulips and floral motif are hand-painted on the lid and 3 sides, with colorful yellow and red triangle symbols bordering the top.  Take notice of the nicely, scalloped base on all 4 sides, adding additional character.  A unique addition to your collection or give a special gift!
