Antiques Considered - June 11, 2014

The owner of this “house” does not know its age or origin. He purchased it at a recent estate sale for $50.  An old note inside indicated that it was made from a mailbox, but un-fortunately, the note was not dated. The interior, which is not divided into rooms, is not painted, and appears to be pine. The entire front is a door, which hinges on the left. He asks if the house is considered a “primitive?”
The definition of “primitive” varies greatly. Normally, it refers to an object or painting done by an unschooled artisan, an item that is at least 100 years old. Accepting that meaning, this piece probably is not primitive.
