Folk Art Style Herb BoxBy Mark Chervenka
Folk Art Style Herb Box
This new country style herb box imitates 19th century originals made of paper mache. The new boxes are made of brown cardboard with a layer of red paper applied on top. The red layer is "antiqued" with nicks, scratches and tears to give the appearance of age. Anywhere an edge of the red layer is exposed - like the scratches or tears - will fluoresce white under long wave black light. Retail for the new boxes was $52 a set.
