Description

Sorry don't know exactly what to call this. It belonged to my 79 yr old Dad's grandparents and then came to his parents before he got it. It's all wood except for the hinges and latch. We've felt every piece of wood and there is no moisture, rot or mold anywhere, it's all solid. Just dusty as we're cleaning out my parents' garage and it was hiding. It measures 4.5 feet to the the flat top, and then the higher decorative piece on the back is about 9 inches tall at the highest point. My grandma painted the yellow onto it in the 50's. I'm sorry I don't have every angle pictures, I have a torn shoulder and am in a sling and this is as far as I could pull the thing out. If you need more specific pictures I can attempt to get them.

Provenance

Just something my great-grandparents owned (unsure if they inherited it or built it or what) in the early 1900's.
