H. L. Purdy Dome Box

Manchester, Vermont

Circa 1835

Painted White Pine

9” x 16 3/4” x 8 ¾”


This dome-painted box contains an inscription of “H.L. Purdy” on the front horizontal side of the dovetailed dome lid. The nailed lid opens on steel wired hinges on a dovetailed case with a quarter-round-molded flange attached to the inside edge with wrought iron nails. The box is ornately decorated with a yellow, orange, and brown background with a contrasting white, yellow, and green foreground design. The background contains a feather-like design. The block letter inscription on the box likely connects to H.L. Purdy who was a Merchant, from Manchester, Vermont.
