A beautiful old box that has been handmade and then totally hand carved. It shows its age, with some scuffs on the top and the shrinking of the unfinished wood on the bottom. Definitely not made in a foreign country for export, this is a piece of genuine folk art.

The picture of the bottom shows that the way wooden pegs were used in its construction, not nails. I don't see any sign of nails being used in the rest of the box, but have no way of knowing for sure.

When looking at the pattern of the carving, you can see that it is not made by machine, there are little variations in the carving, as being hand carved would show.

The box has a locking mechanism and the key was likely lost while the box was locked and it has been damaged by someone having to pry it open.

Lined with old wallpaper, the bottom piece has a green felt-ish type of paper or fabric glued on.

Amazing work, very old, I just don't know when this would have been made for sure.

Measures overall 8" wide, 5" high .. When opened up the inside is 3" deep and 7-1/4" wide.

Selling as is, it is a lovely piece of hand work.
Canadian shipping is estimated. I will refund any excess.

Thanks for looking, visit my shop for more vintage!
