Back in the days when everything was made by hand, we offer this antique wood lidded box. Display this Americana, folk art, primitive piece anywhere or use as a prop for a period movie or show.
Believed to be a hat box, the inscription on it's top gives the piece provenance and history. Kingston NY was the capital of NY at one point in time. The box belonged to William Reynolds of Kingston NY. The side of the box also has the "size" of the object that was inside of it long ago.
We love the interior. It has it's original floral paper on the box and the lid. The exterior has all of it's original nails to keep the box intact. The box has a lot of beautiful patina, inherent wear and cracks from use and age.
