This pleasing lidded wall box is of a plain finely-grained honey coloured timber, possibly fruitwood. It has straight sides, a slightly sloping lid with curved edges and a solid backing currently with a metal hanging loop. This could well have originally had a wire loop for hanging as there are two perforations beside the attachment for the current hanger. The hinges are partly set into the wood. All four sides are nicely dovetailed with the addition of some wooden pegs. The lid does not stay open and is hinged to close automatically. The overall condition is very good for age with some minor staining and minimal dents. It is likely that this was used for candles but it could have had multiple varieties for use. With its understated elegance, this piece would be a lovely addition to a country farmhouse or shabby chic home. 12 ins (30.4cm) wide x 5.2 ins (13.3cm) depth x height with hanger 6.75 ins (17.2cm). Weight 982 grams. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $53.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
