Nice Antique Tramp Art Box, Chip Carved, Cigar Box Advertising

Most of the tramp art boxes of the early 20th century are made from cigar boxes. Seldom it is as obvious as this one. The maker too the time to be sure the lid showed the cigar company manufactory. There is a pressed head of a man smoking. The letters say Good -mokers (presumably Smokers) Delight of L & J. The lid is framed on all four sides with 3 layers of chip carving. Each side of the box is also framed with 3 layers. This gives the impression of more layers. One end of the box has -OLORAD- (presumably COLORADO). The inside is no adorned. The hinges are original. The box measures 8 1/4" x 4 3/4" x 4 1/2".
