A lovely vintage glove box, made of wood and decorated with pyrography (wood burning). The design on the lid is of red flowers and the head of a Gibson Girl-style woman. The look is very much Art Nouveau.

This box measures about 10.25 inches by about 3.5 inches. It is about 2 inches tall. The exterior of the box is directed with pyrography, to look like wood grain. The top of the box, which is hinged to the body, features two red flowers and leaves and the head, in profile, of a young woman. The inside of the lid has the same design but without the red coloring on the flowers. The hinges appear to be made of brass and are in complete working condition.

The box is in very good condition. The only thing that could be called a flaw is actually something that adds enormously to the charm of the item, from my point of view. On the bottom of the box, the owner has written a name and address in pencil. The name, Mrs. Wm. Chalefou, is repeated in several iterations--Mrs., Mr. and Mrs., Julia and Bill. I can't help but think of a young girl with a crush on a boy, getting a thrill out of writing her name, as if she were married to him (come on, you know you did it in junior high!) There's no doubt this vintage piece has a long, sweet history!

Please keep in mind that this item is vintage and we love it, in part, because of its age, history and patina. I feel that beauty is enhanced by the fact that they have been used and loved and they don't look brand new.
