This nice old box is made of slabs of solid cedar with nailed construction. The body of the box is made of 1/2" thick slabs and measures 9" long and 5 1/2" wide. The 1/4" thick base that it sits on is about an 1" larger in both directions. 7" tall to the top of the removable lid.
Nicely made in an ark or casket style with lap jointed seams, handles on each end and a stacked handle on the the lid. Stained in a warm dark brown. The interior is unstained.
In very nice condition with tight seams and no looseness or damage other than very minor loss on two corners of the extended base. One is shown in the last picture. Also several tiny worm holes on one side (3rd picture, towards the bottom).
A handsome box, probably made to hold cigars but could be used for any number of things.
