This lovely color theme, so appropriate for today’s décor, was inspired by an antique piece, by Amund Myro, that we saw in a Norwegian folk art museum during one of our tours with Vesterheim to Norway. Although his large cupboards were painted in the Hallingdal tradition, the color adapted well to this piece
The piece is a bost cast, a Norwegian “hidey-hole,” used to store small things such as a brush and comb, mittens, a small bottle of spirits, etc. The stories vary. This piece is sized to hold a box of tissues or table napkin. You can adapt it to sit on a shelf by drilling a small hole and gluing a wooden axel peg in the center of the bottom “scallop.”
