This delightful Swedish lidded box, most likely made as a love token, is a lovely example of Scandinavian folk art. It is painted in a beautiful soft shade of blue, and is decorated in green, white and red, with a garland of leaves and flowers on the front, and the monogram "L F D" and the date "1842" on the lid; there are bands of red around the sides and on the edge of the lid. The lid has a bent-wood carrying handle and a carved dog-tooth detail around the edge; the back of the box shows the bentwood construction, itself very appealing. Swedish, mid-19th century.
