Wooden Box With Lid Hand Carved Babe Miles Vintage Souvenir of Steheken, Washington USA: (Google 'Babe Miles' to read about this man and his home in the wilderness). This 6 1/2 inches (16.5cm) long, 4 3/4 inches (12cm) wide, 2 inches (5cm) deep box with a fitted lid was made in Steheken, Washington, by B.F. 'Babe' Miles. Steheken is a tiny hamlet at the beginning of a 55 mile long mountain lake, accessible by boat only, no roads in or out, and is about 25 miles (as the crow flies) across many high Cascade mountain peaks from where I live. I went to a local estate sale and this box was one of the items I picked up there. There is one small 1/4 inch (.63cm) long and two tiny 1/8 inch (.317cm) long dents on the bottom right corner of the top. None of the dents show raw wood, so they must have been there before Babe applied the finish. The inside of the box is divided into two 3 1/2 inches (7.75cm) long, 2 3/4 inches (7cm) wide compartments. This handsome, hand carved piece is rated in Very Good Plus condition (there is a small amount of wear, no repairs have been made and no repairs are needed).
