Original paint decorated toleware deed box with a swag design. The black painted background shows wear but the lovely motifs are still colorful and bright. The paint shows crazing from age. The hasp is missing but the box retains its original handle. There are no touch-ups or overpainting and overall a beautiful piece. Additional photos are attached by the link to the right.
