A Swedish “Svepask” Box in Original Blue Paint with Kurbits Flower C. 1850

This “Svepask” or “Tine” box (as they are known in Scandinavia) was made circa 1850 in Sweden by taking a single thin piece of wood, heated and boiled, and then stretched over a mold and sewn together with wood fibers. Known also as a sweep-around-box, this Svepask features its original blue paint. The lid is adorned with a wonderful folk art painting of a Kurbits flower, a traditional motif in the decoration of painted objects from the Dalarna region of Sweden.
