Treen trinket or sewing box Boy and Dog chromo lithograph print St. Bernard dog 1800's
Made of wood this little Victorian trinket or small sewing box features a fabulous chromo lithograph print to the lid. We see an idyllic scene of a little boy in period dress waving his left hand with his faithful dog at his side. I think the dog is a St. Bernard but am happy to be corrected on this. Originally there would have been two dividers and possibly a lift out tray but these are now missing.
Size: 6" wide x 4. 3/8" deep x 2.1/8" tall Weight = 6.4 oz or 180 g. All measure approximate.
Condition: Very good - the tab of the fastening clasp is missing (a common fault) and there are various small age related marks, still it remains a charming and delightful box to add to your collection. Please see all photographs and as ever I am happy to send more and answer any questions you may have.
