Hand fashioned, with a teakwood carcass, this unusual antique alms box features hand hammered brass sheeting encasing it, with a scalloped and pierced gallery around the hexagonal top. Notice the tiny, locked door at the base, for removing the donations. This piece would make a nice, little night stand, or a chair-side table.
