This is an astounding vintage Swiss folk art box! I believe it is a chalet box that was made to place on a dresser and hold your gloves, ties, lingerie, or whatnot.

It is paper covered with magnificent scenery of the Swiss Alps in the background, a couple in traditional clothing, and gorgeous floral and fauna framing the top and sides.

The man in on the front is holding a "alphorn", or alpine horn. All the colors are bright and vivid.

The box measures 12" x 10 1/2" x 2". The inside and back are painted dark brown. The hinges are an interesting shape, forged from what appears to be brass.

There is some wear on the top and bottom edges and on the corners. The bottom has some scratches. The inside is in excellent condition.

International buyers, please convo me for shipping rates on this item.

Truly a spectacular piece of folk art!
