We are offering a wonderful homemade folk art box that has been incise carved with a strawberry motif. The piece measures 10.25 inches long, by 7.25 inches deep, and 10.75 inches tall. It is all made from solid pine boards. No plywood here. The sides have been perforation-cut with a scroll saw revealing a heart and leaf design. On the surface of the wood on all four sides there is an incised and chip-carved design that represents strawberries and leafy vines. On the top the lid is hinged to lift up allowing access to the inside. The surface of the piece is covered with a very heavy layer of varnish that has started to crackle. In addition, the top has an incised and chip carved leafy vine design. There is a board inside that is unattached. It was clearly intended to fit up against the left wall to provide a stop for the lid. We have left it with the piece. The box is in very nice condition. The construction is totally sound and the hinged lid works as it should. This is a very unusual item that is not well-defined with regards to its original intended purpose. Its size makes it large enough to be useful yet not too large. It would work well anywhere you would like a small decorative storage box.
