Fantastic antique Victorian era Black Forest hand carved 16" desk top document or jewelry box, highly ornate foliate decoration with RARE fox figure and egg-filled nest! A wonderful old casket, this one has been painstakingly hand carved from one large solid block of wood! Two pieces, the base/box and then the lid....amazing considering the high level of detail throughout! The interior of the box hollowed out to a cylindrical shape measures 11 7/8" x 3". The base of the box measures an impressive 16" wide and 8 1/8" front to back, it weighs 3 lbs 11 oz. A marvelous decorative box, rare with the fox figure and just about as fine as you'll ever find! Don't miss this one!
Very good-excellent condition. A few tiny nips possible but, as you can see, this one is wonderfully aged its 100-150 years! All original hardware including lock and skeleton key. The interior lining is a bit aged and may not be original. See pictures for all measurements.
