Antique Pine Marriage Box From Kaloteszeg
An antique pine marriage box or chest with carved details and intricate folk painted design of flowers in the panels to front. This is typical of the furniture painting of the Hungarian peasants who lived in Eastern Central Transylvania in the later 19th century, the intricacy of the painting actually references embroidery & Sunday best folk costumes that were worn well into the 20th century.
The top without paint, worn away by the box doubling up, probably with linen towel, as a seat. Handles to side, candle box to interior, usable fixed condition.
