Early Norwegian Hand Painted Rosemaled Bentwood Tine Box

This is a wonderful piece of Scandinavian folk art most likely from the Norwegian region of Os based on the way the box is constructed and the rosemale scrolling and floral decoration. These exquisite boxes were the Scandinavian version of pantry boxes, called tine in Norway or svepask in Sweden.

This Norwegian tine was acquired at an estate auction and a business card from an antique shop in Kobenhavn was found inside with the hand written notation: Bought in Copenhagen, Denmark. The card was not dated. There also appears to be hand-scripted initials on the lid by the bentwood handle
This Norwegian tine is in very good condition with some minor paint loss such as on the lid handle due to age and loving use. The paint has darkened a bit over time and exhibits a rich and slightly exotic patina. The tine construction remains sturdy and the lid snaps crisply into place.

This box weighs 1 pound 10.6 inches is a generous 11 inches long, 7 inches wide and 6 ½ inches tall to the top of the handle.
