Presented is a large, antique c1890 - 1920, bentwood tine box, also called a "snap box" with hand os rosemaling details all around the outside and on the top. This beautiful and well-made provincial-styled box from Bergen Norway. The color palette is mustard yellow, forest green, brick red, royal and navy blues, taupe and off-white There is a hand scripted saying painted in black letters on one side of the box, but we haven't been successful in deciphering it, but perhaps you will be. To remove the cover: Gently push one post slightly back and slide the lid away from it, then pull the lid gently upward and away from the posts.
The condition of this box is very good and it displays perfectly, with no paint loss or visible damages. When you lift off the cover, you will see a notch in the box's rim close to the "left" post. This rim chip is the only damage we find. Dimensions: 12 1/2 inches long by 6 inches wide by 5 inches deep. The total height is 7 1/2 inches from the bottom of the box to the top of the posts.
