This box was decorated by my great grandfather. I never met him( I am old - but not that old :). It was probably done in the late 1800's. From what I know, he was a decorator and painter and made a living decorating the houses of the well-to-do. I used to have some oil paintings and some furniture he decorated, but sadly they were lost. The initials K.S. stand for Karl Suess. How would one classify this? Is it folk art??
Thanks for looking :)
