This oval tine has a Viking feeling with the ornate handle and horse head ends. The Tine boxes were traditionally used to carry a day’s lunch or were used as storage containers. This piece is also featured in Gayle Oram’s 2007 book, Rosemaling Styles, Study and Design.
When you close the lid you will hear a “snapping” sound, this sound also gave the tine the name “snap box.” Are you ready to make this piece a part of your home décor? Start new memories with this piece as a gift or just enjoy your artistic hard work.
This piece was made with the finest grade of poplar hardwood and Poplar veneer board from Italy for the sides and birch plywood for the container bottom. Copper tacks were used to pin together the finger portion of the body.
