I feel quite assured I can say this is a one-of-a-kind antique box. It is a letter box with lift off lid. The box measures 9" x 7" x 5". The front, lid, and two sides are decorated with pieces of leather cut in flower and leaf shapes. The edges are trimmed with leather braid. The box itself is made from scrap wood. This is quite evident in looking at the inside. It is been dark stained with heavy varnish. There are some pieces of leather missing. Nevertheless, it is quite attractive and a real conversation piece.
