1800's Antique Victorian Era Wood Box Germany Folk Art
- Source: eBay
Found at a German Estate. Box is signed by the artist on the bottom with the name of the town also. It is not dated, but, the box is certainly 1800's.Measures 10 3/4 x 8 3/4 x 3 1/4 inches. Velvet lined. Wonderful 1800's original hinges and lock mechanism. No key. The top has a one of a kind German scene complete with a house or inn, trees and dirt road that leads to a lake or river in the background. Gorgeous wood Inlay on all sides. The wood looks like it is starting to get dry and the high bidder may choose to oil/treat the wood. However, I want to keep it in the original finish for this sale. One of the higes has a nail through it to keep the hinge together. Inside, the velvet has some minor wear and has dust in the corners. There are some scratches on the wood with two minor dings on the top. Check out all the photos for details. This is an extraordinary box. No Reserve ! Shipping cost includes insurance and professional packing.
