Pyrography (or wood burning), often referred to as Flemish Art, was a popular decorative style common in the early 1900's. It is often associated with the Arts and Crafts movement because of its simplicity and artistic qualities. We are offering a latched desk box that is decorated with a grape motif featuring leaves, vines and a bunch of grapes. In addition, the box is also signed on the bottom with the label "Flemish" and the inventory number 688. Most often, items like this will not have the Flemish signature. It measures 6 1/4 inches by 5 3/4 inches and is 2 ½ inches tall. The overall condition is good, being clean and solid. The hinges are intact and tight which is unusual as the hinges on boxes of this type are usually loose. The brass latch is still present although the hook for the latch is missing so that it will no longer lock shut. The original owner of the box has left his identifying stamp on the bottom in several places along with one stamp on the inside. There is a very, very slight warp to the lid so that it does not completely shut, but leaves a very slight gap. Beyond these small issues, it is a nice piece that is ready to be used and would look good in your home or office.
