Two (2) dark green painted wood hanging boxes, including one (1) pipe box. 1st item: Early American black painted pipe box with a shaped hanger back, interior well with sloped and scalloped sides, and a lower square nailed drawer. Together with four (4) early 20th century clay colonial style pipes, marked Gouda. Pipes length average 16 1/2". Pipe box: 18 1/2" H x 6 1/4" W. American, early 19th century. 2nd item: Early American dark green long rectangular hanging box with sliding cover, circular shaped hanger. Square nail construction. 13 1/2" H x 2" W. American, first half of the 19th century. Provenance: The estate of Charles K. Davis, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee, by descent from his father, Charles K. Davis of Fairfield, CT. Note: Charles Krum Davis Sr. (1889-1968) was chairman of the Remington Arms Company, and a passionate early collector of Americana. With the help of a few important dealers, primarily Israel Sack, Davis assembled what has been called one of the most important private collections of early Americana. His home was profiled in the Magazine Antiques, January and March, 1941. Much of Mr. Davis Sr.'s collection ultimately went to Winterthur and other museums. Condition: Boxes in overall very good condition with expected use wear. Some minor loss to underside right front edge around nail of pipe box.
