Shop Description: We are country Americana dealers who search for pre-1850 furnishings that are functional, well constructed and have great and sometimes unique form with wonderful paint and patina. With appreciation for all craftsmen of that period, we travel throughout the east coast to find American furniture, early lighting, treenware/woodenware, kitchen/hearth implements as well as other interesting accessories from that period. After years of collecting we opened our business in the year 2000 and continue to utilize the same criteria in making our purchases for the business as we do for ourselves.

The inside is very clean. In addition, there appears to be blotches of red wax on the front and sides. After some thought we think it was used in a store and the wax was used to display what was inside each compartment! The box is in excellent condition with only some minor loss on the base.

This is a very interesting box that was used for ballots (possibly a bank?). I say this because the sliding top has numerous nail holes on the end and the box has matching nail holes on the top of the box panel which when nailed together would secure the slide. The box is dovetailed with some t nail construction (bottom). While there is some minor loss on the slide and the housing for the slide, this all original box is in excellent condition.
