Pyrography is the art of decorating wood or other materials with burn marks resulting from the controlled application of a heated object such as a poker; also known as pokerwork or wood burning. The term means "writing with fire", from the Greek pur (fire) and graphos (writing).

This wonderful Art Deco era letter stationery box, circa 1920, is decorated on the lid with the image of a lovely lady with grapes and leaves adorning her hat and gown. The vineyard motif is continued on three sides of the box, which is fitted with the original hinges and closure mechanism. The box measures 11 3/4" in length, 9" in width and 2 3/8" in height. There are no damages or repairs; the closure mechanism needs some adjustment to latch. The motif is detailed and sharp and could be used for various purposes.
