An Antique


Wooden Carrier Box


From Lancaster County Pennsylvania

Pretty Hand Painted Pansy Decoration


A handsome handmade antique wooden carrier box with pretty FOLK ART PAINTED PANSY FLOWERS.  From a local estate sale in Lancaster County.  

A lovely long and low carrier on raised feet.  It's good and heavy weighs more than 12-lbs. and has a nice sturdy metal handle that is screwed into the sides and stands quite high over the box.  There are charming hand painted decorations of Pretty Pansy Flowers on either side. The shape of the box is very interesting, it looks somewhat like a farrier's tool box with 4 small divided sections at the ends and a wide and open center section. It's made of maple, oak and pine, with boards that are 3/4" and 1/2" thick and have a lovely warm color to the wood. Nicely shaped arched legs that are very sturdy and rest evenly with no wobble.

It was used as a flower gathering tote in the garden.  It's such a pretty piece, it could work in any room of your home.  Delightful for use in a country kitchen, dining room, living room or bedroom.  Fill it full of flowers or perfect to hold bottles at either end and glassware in the center.  Think of all the uses you might make of this charming old wooden carrier!

It's quite large  25-3/4" long and 11-1/2" wide.  It's 9-1/2" high at either end and 15-1/2" high to the top of the fixed handle.

Small boxes measure 4-3/4" x 3-1/2".  Center section measures 15-3/4" x 10".  

It's good and heavy, weighs a little more than 12-lbs..

It has a little wear showing along the top edges and the feet, some tiny knicks and scrapes from use over the years, but it is still quite charming and in great structural condition. It's very heavy, still good and strong with no weakness.  Clean interior.

A charming antique with delightful hand painted Pansy Flower decoration.
