A wonderful sponge decorated, dovetailed fall-front box with green velvet lining and a carrying handle on the top. The box has its original mustard and tan sponge decoration and original key and working lock. Decorated on all 4 sides, the box measures 12” x 5 ½” x 7” (high). Thick dovetails on the top and sides. Minor surface wear, especially to the corners and some slight lifting of the green velvet, primarily on the inside of the fall-front. Small split at the lower right (front side) and the hinges appear to be original.

After considerable thought and discussion, I believe this to be a Microscope Box used to house a laboratory Microscope. Whatever it is, it is a nice box in original decoration.
