Carved & Painted Souvenir Nesting Boxes from Konigsee, Germany

We are offering a set of three boxes that are signed on the bottom with "Grusse von Konigsee" (Greetings from Konigsee) and "Handarbeit" (Hand made). They are beautifully executed with lots of details. The sides and the tops are all lathe turned and then carefully cut to provide pierced designs. Nestled in the center of each lid there is a small floral painting of stylized edelweiss. The largest box measures 4 1/4 inches in diameter and stands 2 3/8 inches tall. The second box is 2 3/4 inches in diameter and 1 ½ inches tall. The smallest box is 2 1/4 inches in diameter and 1 1/4 inches tall. All three are in excellent condition with no breaks, splits or missing pieces. They have a natural surface with no dyes, stains or finish. We are unsure of the type of wood used but suspect that it could be linden or bass. Overall, they are clean and bright, looking as if they have never been used. The set would be a delight to have in your boudoir as a conversation piece or sitting on a desk as a knick knack. They could be used for storage, but with the nesting boxes inside it would be difficult to store much in them. This set will be a treat for you to have and hold!
