This is an original tole document box decorated with hand-painted tulips, stylised flowers and “hearts aflame” at the two ends. It has a top carrying handle and a catch at the front which closes it securely but it can be made even more secure with the attached chain and clip or with the addition of a padlock. The paintwork is in good condition but the main black surface shows signs of wear and there are “dings” and a tiny amount of internal rust appropriate for age and it having been loved and used. The hinge is adequately sound. This would be a lovely addition to a collection of tole folk art. Length 5.5 ins (14cm), width 9 ins (23cm), depth 5.25 ins (13.5cm). Weight 460 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 62. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $52.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper.
