vintage c. 1950s (possibly earlier)
gorgeous handcrafted wood box with brass hinges and latch
perfect for storing and displaying your most precious natural specimens
removable tray divided into 48 equal compartments, each approx. 1 3/4" x 2"
lower level is divided into four equal compartments, each approx. 4 1/2" x 12 1/4"
the box has fine dovetail joints on the corners, a beautiful patina of age
the wood used to construct the interior compartments appears to be repurposed bits

*NOTE: minerals and other natural bits are for display only and not included with the box!*

19 3/4" wide x 13 1/4" deep x 5 1/4" tall

very good condition! thoroughly wiped down with mild detergent to remove dust & dirt, but still has a bit of a mildew odor. needs a nice sunbath, and it should be a.-o.k. there's damage on one of the dovetail joints, see last picture for detail. doesn't affect the functionality or beauty of this beautiful box.


Thanks for stopping by the Trap!
