Antique French school child’s document box dated 1906. Unique, folk art paint-decorated pine box with an original and untouched painted surface, with a dedication on the cover and handwritten notes on the inside. Original metal reinforced corners and hardware. The key is missing, BUT the box was accompanied with a primitive handmade padlock and key. The padlock and key serve no functional purpose with regard to the box, but are somehow interwoven into the history of the box.
Superb, excellent antique condition with normal wear that includes a couple of small sections of wood missing along the edges as shown. No Restoration.
Size: 9 ½” x 15”. Height is 7”.
