565. Norwegian container. dated “1881” and signed “Johannes Pedersen Teigland”. Highly decorated inside and out and the iron work is heart detailed. Blue is a very sought after color but a dark blue is rare. The box suggests to me that it is older than “1881”looking at the construction and the early iron work, maybe early 19th century. You find this style of painting in Sweden as well. A very strong decorative container that would look outstanding anywhere in one’s home. Size: H. 13 in., L. 14 in., W. 11 in(29cm by 35cm by 28cm).
