Anniversary Bible Box, Chester County, PA, ca. 1740. Curly cherry – Boiled linseed oil and shellac.
Line-and-berry design on the front is based on those I saw at a Wintertur exhibit last year. Side inlays are initials of my wife and myself, with some added frills, in holly and dyed walnut.
This was made to match a spice box I made just prior with the same wood.
I think I will add an insert tray.
Thanks for looking and God bless.
