This is a rare picture box. The box has an original key and locks. When opened, the box has spring mounted frames that are patented. Each side holds 12 leaves that will hold 24 pictures. The entire piece removes to mount the photos. The doors of the box swing open so that you can view the photos. The mounts are brass. The box measures 6-1/2" tall, 8-1/2" long and 6" wide. The openings for the photos measure 2" by 3-1/2". This is a rare photo box in excellent condition. The only flaw I can find is an crack in the wood on the base underside due from the wood drying out over many years. The piece is C-1880-190.
