A beautiful American (?) folk art box decorated with LEATHER Oak Leaves, acorns, flowers, grapes and floral leaves. The edges are decorated with what I could best describe as a combination "look" of braiding or ruffling. It has a lock but no key. The interior, as you see, is decorated with colorful paper, seemingly glued in. It is still very colorful but has a bit of discoloration which may be caused by aging glue. If I had to guess, I'd say the box was either a handmade box or a "found" box...somewhat cigar box shaped. It's dimensions are approx. 13 inches horizontally, 9 inches across and about 5 inches deep. I think this box may be 1850's (Civil War) on and, as such, is EXTREMELY fragile. It is not perfect as the leather has dried over the years. Every effort will be taken to pack this for shipping. But I can only do my best with such a rare and fragile creature.
