THIS IS A LARGE ANTIQUE SWEDISH BOX (SVEPASK). IT MEASURES ABOUT 15" LONG X 9-14" TALL (HIGHEST POINT AT ENDS) X 10" WIDE. WE HAVE NO HISTORY OTHER THAN IT CAME FROM SWEDEN. IT IS CIRCA 1900 AND IN GOOD CONDITION CONSIDERING IT WAS LIKELY USED, ON A DAILY BASES, FOR MANY, MANY DECADES. THERE ARE SOME SMALL AREAS, ON ONE END WHERE SOME BIRCH CORD IS MISSING BUT I SEE NO MITE DAMAGE, BREAKS OR REPAIRS. THE "OX BLOOD" PAINT IS ORIGINAL AND SOME HAS FADED OVER THE YEARS BUT MOST OF IT IS STILL VIBRANT. THE LID COMES ON AND OFF VERY EASILY. A DEALER TOLD ME THIS IS CALLED A "SWING LOCK" BUT I'M NOT SURE. THE POST, AT ONE END, COMES OUT WHEN YOU OPEN AND YOU SWING THE ARM BACK TO LOCK IN PLACE. THAT END IS ON THE RIGHT SIDE IN PHOTO 4. THE DESIGN, AROUND THE BOX, IS WOOD STAMPED. IT LOOKS LIKE THERE ARE WOOD PEGS AS WELL AS SQUARE NAILS BUT I CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT BECAUSE THEY ARE SO DEEP THAT THEY ARE HARD TO SEE CLEARLY. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VERY BIG BOX SO BE SURE YOU HAVE ROOM AND LIKE THE PRIMITIVE LOOK. AUCTION ITEMS ARE OFFERED "AS IS" WITH NO RETURNS SO ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE YOU BUY. YOU WILL BE VERY HAPPY THAT THE SHIPPING IS FREE. THANK YOU!
