ANTIQUE SCANDINAVIAN NORWEGIAN FOLK ART HAND PAINTED STAVED GROTAMBAR. An antique Norwegian folk art Grotambar (porridge box).Dating to the early19th century, the pine box is made in sections and bound to hold in place (staved). The grotambar has been hand painted in green with a white washed base which sadly covers an original signature in beautiful script. It measures 7 inches tall x 7.5 inches in diameter. Amazingly the original little carved peg closure has survived probably because it is tied to the handle with what looks like original red string. It has been carved to fit exactly into a groove, such a lovely original detail. The box and painted surface show the signs of age and wear as can be seen but remain in otherwise good overall condition. Please see my listings for details.
