This is an antique inlay wood box. It is walnut with marquetry wood stripes in a geometric pattern. There is an inlay wood diamond shaped escutcheon. Inside the box are two lidded tea compartments. The foil lining is intact. There is an inspirational thought pasted inside the lid. "Wait before worry. Wait before you frown. Don't let any problems of the future get you down; Because a plan went wrong. Wait and something better Will be sure to come along." The box measures 9" x 4 1/2" x 4 1/4". Very good condition.
