This charming Chip Carved Box is beautifully decorated with Sunburst designs on each side and the top. The quality of the carving is excellent and each little cut out segment is hand painted in red, blue, yellow, green and orange. It is well made with mortise and tenon joints, and has a divided interior that was probably designed to hold two packs of playing cards, but would be great on a desk. It measures 5 1/4" long, 2 3/4" wide and stands 3 1/2" tall, the condition is excellent, except for a little fading to the colors on the lid, certainly to be expected after 80 years, this would be from the 1920s or earlier, a nice piece of Treen.
