Lovely early wood box fitted for storing playing cards. The box measures 7" x 5 1/2" x 2 1/4". The corners are beautifully rounded. The lid has a landscape image with the initials was A. L. It appears to be painted because the wood-grain is faintly visible. The inside is stained with a dark stain. The outside also has a dark stain with a gloss finish. This is a lovely box to use and/or display.
