Description: This is an antique colonial wall hanging or table top paint decorated arch scrolled pipe box with dovetailed drawer from New England circa 1700s for your consideration. During the 18th century the pipe was used during times of leisure and celebration. Primarily made of clay until the end of the 19th century, this fragile instrument needed safekeeping. American colonists crafted handmade boxes to hold their long stemmed clay pipes. The small drawer held loose tobacco. The antique pipe box is handmade of white pine wood, which was prevalent in the northeast colonies until over harvested by the end of the 18th century. The antique pipe box is handmade with age appropriate square nails. The side panels are sloped and scrolled forming a decorative edge. The back solid panel is arched and scrolled with a center hole for hanging. The bottom is tapered on three sides to form beveled edge molding. The front panel has an inverted arch cut out with a decorative cut out decorative central notch. The front and back of the small tobacco drawer are dovetailed and the bottom is attached with square nails. There is an original brass knob on the front of the small tobacco drawer. The top cavity of the box is deep welled to hold clay pipes. The small drawer would have held an ample amount of tobacco. The antique wall hanging pipe box retains its original New England red stain that is so desirable.

Dimensions: 19 1/2 inches high, 5 1/2 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches deep
