A lot of hard work went into this Vintage Handcarved Wooden Box circa 1960s. The mosaic inlay work is very intricate with the tiniest pieces in silver, black, green, red and white. The top of the lid has very interesting imagery in deep relief carving with a 3 headed man or deity, a horse or animal playing an instrument, foliage and other figures. The sides of the box also have deep relief carvings of foliage and birds.

It has a hole for a small skeleton key with a lock that is marked, "Patent Lever - Warranted". Although its orignial key is missing, they were very universal and finding one that works may not be that unattainable.

At some point I believe that this box was dropped and an attempt to repair is obvious. The top inside panel has a crack that goes across it, but doesn't seem to move at all. Small pieces of the wood carving on top was broken off, as pictured. The last picture shows where a lot of the inlay and corner pieces came off. Two other corner pieces in the front are missing a pictured in the second pic. Inside, two newer hinges were placed inside the lid; one was screwed in and I believe the other is glued in order to sturdy the lid. Overall, this piece is definitely not perfect, but is very sturdy and attractive. It has a lot of really great qualities that trump its damage.

This box measures approx. 9.25" x 6.5" x 3.25" and is pretty solid weighing approx. 2 lbs. 6 oz. The deep relief carving on this piece makes it a little hard to dust, but I did my best! Please feel free to contact us with any questions or country specific rates.
