This is a nice small size primitive wall box made from walnut. It has a nicely shaped top with a little tray that would be perfect for holding keys. It appears that it may have once been used for just that purpose as there are tiny marks on the back that could have been made by keys. It also could be used for holding matches or other small items.
It is 9 inches wide and 7 inches tall. The slanted tray is 8 inches long, 1 ½ inches deep and 1 ¼ inches wide at the top edge. There is some edge wear and small chips and the old finish is dull.
