A rare and unusual Black Forest piece – this is a hand carved and decorated box which is a scent caddy. It is lined with pale grey velvet and houses three glass scent bottles, each with its original stopper. The design of the carving is of oak leaves and acorns on the top, front and sides. It opens and closes well with a press button. This item is in very good condition for age. 5 ins (12.5cm) x 2 in (5cm) x 4 in (10.5cm). Weight 450 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 423.
