Painted Wall Box with Carved Squash Blossoms

What a great find! — A folky 20th c. Northern New Mexico wall box decorated with fresco-like carved, painted squash blossoms. This is a handcrafted piece made of mixed wood, with hand-carved inch-thick pine planks on the sides of the box. I love the deep sky blue and white paint. I also love the size — 17-3/4” w X 11-1/2” h X 8-3/8” d — perfect for magazines, fresh wash cloths in a bathroom or any number of other decorative uses.
