  • From my personal collection - a very fine oval pantry box made in Hingham MA by Bela Sprague, a master cooper.

    Lovely medium blue milk paint with some wear.

    Impressed stamp "B. Sprague" on the lid - some letters not readable.

    Perfect antique condition. 

    Reverse finger lap seams, wood pegs and metal tacks.

    Bela was a member of the Sprague family and was one of the better known coopers in that family.  He lived from 1804 to 1878. (Bela was a man).

    6 1/4" x 4 3/4" x 2 3/4" tall.
