This is a very attractive dark leather box (leather covering a wood carcass). It looks lovely because of the design that has been embossed into the thick leather, even on the bottom. Also the wood underneath the leather, on the top, is in a design of raised panels which adds to the overall decorative effect. It has a beautiful, folk art simplicity about it. I do not know from where the box originated, and I am not sure how old it is, although I would think it has some age. I have placed it in the vintage category, but it may be of an antique age. It may have been used for a desk top box or cigars, originally.
It is in very good condition and the leather is sound and sturdy; there is a very slight lift to the lid on one side when closed due to a little age shrinkage of the wood carcass.
It measures 8.5 inches (21.5cm) x 6.75 inches (17cm) x just less than 2 inches (5cm).
