This is a charming example of American folk art, most likely originating from Maine. This spruce gum box is carved out of a single piece of wood with bottom and sliding top attached. It is in book-form and has chip carved decoration featuring a punched heart and cross design. Late 19th to early 20th century. Length 4.75 ins (12cm), width 3.75 ins (9.5cm), depth 1.75 ins (4.5cm). Weight 154 grams. In good condition. This item can be seen in the book, "Antique Boxes - Inside and Out", on page 61.
