Tom Cat Lemon Crate Label Home-Made Chalk-board A991

Folk furniture and folk objects, the home-made made-up things, these particularly delight us, and this skillful and decorative piece from the 30s attests to the joyful can-do-itness of the American soul when there’s not that much money, but there’s still enough somehow.

13 1/4″ x 20 1/4″. A quirk of the piece is that the bottom edge of the frame is thicker than the other three, giving it a kind of underbite.

Price on request.
