Set of three oval paper mache stacking nesting boxes with a primitive cottage appeal.
The largest of the three boxes measures approximately 14 by 10 by 2 inches. The medium box is 12 by 9 by 2 and the smallest of the three comes in at about 10 by 7 1/2 by 2 inches. All together they stack about 6 1/2 inches tall.
All of the lids and the medium box are covered with a mottled tan with light brown spotty fabric which resembles a heavy tea or coffee stain. The largest and smallest boxes are covered with a small floral print.
The lid of the largest box is decorated with a flower applique. The flower petals and leaves are felt and the floral center is a smalled stained crocheted doily. All of the pieces have been blanket-stitched to the fabric.
The medium box has a posey basket appliqued to the lid. Again, the basket and floral pieces are cut from felt and blanket-stitched. The flower stems and basket detail are done with floss in a backstitch.
I particularly like the traditional design on the smallest box. Heart in hand with disconnected leaves along with tulips, appliqued, blanket-stitched and even a few French knots in tulips.
The boxes are an attractive blend of folk art and prim blended with a bit of shabby cottage. Designed by Simply Primitive.
