This decorative and extremely tactile bentwood storage box or casket was produced in Norway at the start of the 19th century, circa 1810. The domed pine wood top has a light buttery coloring and a wonderful natural patination from the hands that have held it over the past two centuries. With its fingered lap joints, laced with willow it is a joy to handle, you will definitely not want to put it down
This is the perfect item for a Folk Art inspired interior. Please see it displayed alongside our other bentwood box in the final image, each sold separately.
Measuring: Width 6 1/8 inch (15.5 cm) by height 3 inch (7.5 cm). Depth 4 inch (10 cm).
The box is in good condition with just some minor expected wear from its vast age.
