This wonderful Victorian era glove box has a flowing arts & crafts, Art Nouveau styled poinsettia flower design that is wood burned into the interior of the lid as well as the exterior top and sides.
The box measures 11 and 5/8" by 3 and 5/16" by 2 and 1/4"" high.
It is very lightweight wood; typically these were made from ash or balsa wood. Each piece of wood is 3/16" thick.
These were often made as gloves boxes, however they were also used for jewelry, pocket watches, hair combs, brushes, and other vanity trinkets as well.
This has two 1/2" hinges attached from inside under the lid; it is marked (something) May 6-13.
Condition on this is quite good, although it does have some very minor issues: there are a couple of dark spots on the lid; the one farthest to the left looks like an ink mark almost; the other one more towards the left-center appears to be a burn mark where the heat was left a touch too long. The hinges are securely attached; all nails are present. One BOTTOM nail is surrounded by a wood crack; there is also a small crack in the back panel. Please inspect all photos provided, thank you.
This is sturdy, and a wonderful addition to a pyrography collector's trove, or a Christmas poinsettia collector's treasures. Use it to store your winter gloves, or your holiday address labels, or your red and green markers for gift wrapping.
or, start a new family tradition and gift this with a pair of winter gloves or perhaps some holiday jewelry in it.
