A Carved Pilgrim Period Bible Box, Windsor Area, Connecticut - SOLD
Date/Period: 1660-1680


A Carved Pilgrim Period Bible Box, Windsor Area, Connecticut, entire view 1

Provenance: Israel Sack Inc., New York, 1977
Eric Martin Wunch Collection, 1977-2015
Private Collection, 2015-2021

Measurement: Height: 8.5"; width: 27.25"; depth: 18.25"

Material: Rived oak, pine lid

Condition: Excellent, any imperfections are minor, consistent with 375-years of use.
Minor old pesting limited to bottom board, retains original lid cleats and
pintle hinges: scatted minor edge losses to slightly projecting bottom board.
This extremely rare and important box is worthy of the finest collections.

Additional Information: With its interlocking lunettes, leafy interiors; fleur-del-lis,
stippled background, and scrollwork surrounds, the carved ornament is closely related
to that seen on two joined chests both attributed to the Windsor area in the Connecticut
River Valley and now at the Connecticut Historical Society. The first is ascribed by
Joshua W. Lane and Donald P. White III to the “opposing gouge” group of Windsor and
dated 1660-1680. The same scholars attribute the second to the barber shop tradition,
possibly Thomas Barber, Sr. (1614-1662) or Thomas Barber, Jr. (1641-1711), of
Windsor and Simsbury and date to 1660. See Joshua W. lane and Donald P. White III,
The Woodworkers of Windsor: A Connecticut Community of Craftsmen and Their World,
1635-1715
. (Deerfield 2004), pp. 32, 40, cats. 11, 15. Other noted features: original pine
lid sides are highlighted with gouge-carved notches; tapered cleats featuring shaped
ends and canted outside edges. The bead-fillet-step-half round groove molding to front
edge of lid is worn quite smooth. The tapered lid cleats with shaped front ends are
chamfered on outside edges. The front, sides and backboards are rived.

1982), page 1180, P5150.
