A Remarkable Rare Antique Early 19th Century Folk Art Box Made Entirely Of Cloves.
Folk art reflects the cultural life of a community. The art form encompasses the expressive culture associated with the fields of folklore and cultural heritage. Tangible folk art can include objects which historically are crafted and used within a traditional community. These artistic traditions are shaped by values and standards that are passed from generation to generation, most often within families and communities.
Remarkably, this particular example is made of dried cloves strung together on threads or threaded together with thin wooden pins. Charmingly, even after all this time, it still smells like cloves.
Condition is good, commensurate with age. A fragile piece but structurally good.
Measures 17.5cm x 12cm x 8.5cm
