Beautiful antique Nordic pine Swedish marriage chest or bride's box with initials, A B S, and dated 1836. It is hand made, with lovely hand forged iron mounts, hinges, what appears to be original paint, with the original lock and key. This is called a 'snatch' box, as the hasp grabs the lock and snatches and locks it when the box is closed. This superb box is a beauty and almost 200 years old! The ground color is a dark tavern green and there are hand painted tulips, daisies, and a heart painted on the lid. We are having a difficult time finding these gorgeous boxes. Don't let this one get away!
