This wonderful little hand carved wooden stamp box was obtained as a souvenir of Bordeaux, France. It is done is the style that is referred to as “Black Forest.” The hinged lid is hand carved with a foliage design done in shallow relief against a textured background. Along one side of the lid written in white paint is “Bordeaux.” The box measures 3 inches by 2 ¼ inches, and is 1 1/8 inches high. It is in excellent condition with the exception of a slight amount of warp to the lid so that it no longer closes tight onto the body of the box. There is a small sticker on the bottom of the box which we assume is the original price tag. It is labelled as “Aux Dames de France” and “3f 45”. This adds a nice level of early authenticity to the piece. This is a wonderful little accessory item to have on your desk and is sure to start a conversation. (When we obtained the box it had a Canadian postage stamp in it. We will include the stamp with the purchase.)
