Antique Spoon Rack Above Cutlery or Candle Box, Original Surface History
America, Likely New England - SOLD
Green-painted…a large shaped and carved spoon rack with box, the shaped back
featuring prominently arched crest supporting three slotted racks fitted for eighteen
spoons, the box is of dovetail joinery. It appears that during the boxes early working life
it was overpainted black…now worn and scrubbed revealing original green paint. In very
good original condition with one minor imperfection that does not distract; back inside
corner of dovetailed box (proper right) is missing a wedge of wood due to shrinkage and
resistance against nail; a tin make-do strap was affixed to the outside corner with tiny
square headed nails. The box displays very well.
