This “Bostcast” was used in the old days to hold a comb and brush. I heard they were coated with tar to keep the lice out of ones hair. I designed it to fit a large size tissue box. There is a towel bar underneath the bottom. It measures 11” x 15 ½” x 6 ¼” and is constructed out of alder.
There is a lot of painting space on this piece and will get a lot of attention and use in a prominent place in a bathroom or kitchen. There is a Valdres design in "Rosemaling Styles, Study and Design" for this product.
