Antique Spoon Rack Above Cutlery or Candle Box, Original Surface History
America, Likely New England


Antique Spoon Rack Above Cutlery or Candle Box, Original Surface History
America, Likely New England, entire view 1

White Pine
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.
(Height: 26.75"; width: 13.5"; depth: 5.5")

Antique Pipe Box, Outstanding Form and Red Painted Surface
Connecticut, Circa 1790, entire view 1

Maple and Poplar…a great example
A rare and unusual red painted scalloped sided example of great height and form. The tall
superbly shaped backboard continuing to quadruple lobed bottom terminus; the shaped sides
(reverse profile of lobes) joining molded front featuring ogee profile. The tobacco drawer
retains original brass pull. Terrific…very early red paint over original 18th century paint; fabulous
pigment displaying a dry patina at 100% coverage. The box is in generally fine condition with
only minor imperfection constant with age, loss of one lobe which can be expertly restored to
perfectly match; drawer bottom looks to be an old and common replacement; shrinkage crack
to bottom has been attended to. The presence of this pipe box renders the loss unobtrusive.

Hanging Box and Spoon Rack, Carved, Outstanding and Rare
New England, probably Piscataqua region
Circa 1750
White pine (by analysis)
An elaborate manifestation of "Friesian" Carving by a New England Artisan
White pine - SOLD



One of only a few extant examples of "Friesian" carved objects of 18th- century New England origin; many surviving similarly carved spoon-racks and boxes are assigned to Pennsylvania, New York, and Mid-Atlantic shop traditions. This hanging box may be the most elaborate of only a small number of New England examples.
The strong regional association of the hanging box is reinforced by its unusual iconography. A stylized representation of a pine tree appears on either side of the central section of the back-board. A similar motif is rendered in paint on the facade of a first quarter 18th-century board-chest from Hampton, New Hampshire, and formerly in the collection of Nina Fletcher Little, (Little by Little, p. 194, fig. 257). This chest and a group of related objects all from Hampton are ornamented with painted rosettes related to the carvings ornamenting this wall box.

A white pine board-chest in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is carved with vertical bands of "Friesian" ornament at its outer edges that resemble the faceted serrations of the hanging box. See American Furniture in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Early Colonial Period: The Seventeenth-Century and William and Mary Styles, pp. 217 and 218, number 91.

A white pine box illustrated in American Antiques from the Israel Sack Collection, vol. II, no. 731 is carved with "Friesian" motifs similar to those that appear on the hanging box.

At least one other hanging box probably made by the Hampton shop survives; a lidded example displaying a similar vocabulary of "Friesian" motifs is in the collection of Historic Deerfield and illustrated in Furniture of Historic Deerfield, p. 283, figure 569.

A relatively fragile object intended for a utilitarian purpose, the hanging box survives in a relatively intact state. The wall-box appears to have been originally pigmented with a thin red wash; probably in the 19th-century, a second coat of green paint was applied; now worn substantially, revealing the earlier red beneath. At some time before the application of the green paint, three original spoon rests were removed and lost. In its current state two rests are professionally restored. (H: 25.5"; W: 12.75"; D: 6.5")
