Salvador Corona Mexican Folk Art Wood Trinket Jewelry Box, C.1940

About

This charming tabletop wood box is the work of self taught Mexican artist Salvador Corona who stared his career as an artist after suffering a bullfight injury in the early 1900's. He gained a reputation for creating countryside scenes depicting life in Mexico during the late 1800's and often painted on useful objects including furniture and boxes. The endearing images on this piece include men and women of various social classes mixed in a landscape of swans, horses, birds, trees and cottages all in shades of green, blue, red, gray and black on an antique white background with just a touch of metallic silver and gold. It is a nice size for storing jewelry and keepsakes but it is also a wonderful piece of folk art worthy of admiring all on its own. Signed on the inside corner of the lid. CONDITION The box is in good functional condition with signs of age including a loss of the painted decoration most noticeable at the edges and corners. There is an overall aged appearance to the surface inside and out including some dingy and darkened areas. There are remnants of an old adhesive label on the inside lid and pencil marks on the bottom presumably the original price. None of these issues takes away from the charm of the painting. MEASUREMENTS The box measures 9.63" wide x 4.13" tall x 4.38" deep.
