This wall box spoon rack is exceptional for its artistic conception, crisply carved decoration, and unusually large size. Spoon racks of this complexity were commissioned by the rural elite, and very few comparable American examples survive today. The spoon rack is in untouched condition and has retained its original red painted decoration, which together with its size and design, rank it as one of the finest examples extant.
