A small (4" by 2 3/4" by 2 3/4") tin box of the style common in the circa 1840's period in the northeastern states, the green and red hand painted design on the front remaining, but most of the other paint worn away----some remains in a few spots. These boxes, most larger than this particular example, likely held important papers or other keepsakes. They were made of tin and evidently were part of many households of the period. This example was purchased in Concord, New Hampshire. The small handle remains. Lid closes with the hinge and latch intact but the lid is a little displaced and doesn't fit quite perfectly---there is a small crack in the metal. This is a little box that could tell a lot of stories about life in New England in the 19th century.
