This is a neat little box, perfect to still be used to hold tea!! It has inlaid small diamond designs placed vertical against the grain and a large one going horizontal with the grain on the sides giving it a nice look. A diamond shaped piece of wood has been placed on the top of the lid with a black diamond painted on it. The inside has a two large diamond design, one inside the other, impressed on the lid. "WIDE AWAK TEA CO." is between the diamonds and "SPECIAL" is in the middle. On the bottom has information about cigars Fac No. 35 1st dist of PA. Not sure if tea or cigars were kept in this box! The varnish shows cracking due to age. A metal latch keeps the lid tightly closed.
Measures: 9" L x 3" H x 6 1/2" D
