This vintage wooden accordion style box is the cutest! Made of light colored wood with slightly shiny surface the box offers a wonderful contrast of red "hardware". Actually the diamond shaped knobs and the riveted handle are also wooden. The handle folds down to allow easy access to either side. The top doors open to reveal a compartment on either side of the handle and then each side pulls open to reveal a full length compartment on the bottom.
The photos show jewelry on one side (not included) and vintage sewing supplies on the other (also not included) for size perspective. While closed, the box measures 8" long x 4 3/8" wide x 3 1/4" tall. The metal hinges for the top doors seem a little loose but function just fine. The previous owner dated the box from the 1940's.
Besides being cute it is in Excellent Condition and the bi-level box is quite useful for storage of sewing or craft supplies, jewelry, or even as a small purse if desired!
