This stunning Bavarian wooden box is handpainted in the 'bauernmalerei' (farmer's art) style, so typical of Bavarian countryside folk art. The oval shape and hinged lid make it look like a traditional wedding box, but the wood is a bit too sturdy for that, it could possibly be a bread box or just a chest for storing treasures.


The natural brown colour is punctuated with beautifully painted flowers and swirls and the hinges to the lid are very ornate. The inside is created in a barrel fashion, see photo 8, wonderfully rustic and solid.

The condition is very good consistent with its vintage age, the paint has chipped a little here and there, but overall, it's in a beautiful vintage condition. I'm sure this piece of Bavarian history could tell a story or two!

A wonderful rare addition to an existing collection of rustic 'bauernmalerei' or as a stand alone very special gift.
