Double lobe backboard joining down sloping sides…fullwidth drawer retaining original
ring pull. Its all about the paint, a powerful expression of motion and color, playfulness.
Full coverage paint, soft brown swirling against a mustard yellow ground.
(Excellent original condition; height: 12"; width: 12"; depth: 6.25")
A swirl carved pinwheel surmounting the backboard featuring four rows of two
pinwheels centering compass stars, chip, and gouge carved devices. Two tiers fitted for
five spoons affixed with rosehead and “T”- head nails. Fine condition.
(Height: 18.5"; width: 8.75")

tail joining scalloped sides and compass carved front; simple lap construction…the
entire surface in thin red paint. Excellent original condition.
(Height: 15.5"; width: 12.5"; depth: 4.75")
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.
