This is a very nice antique wooden document box with applied decorative corners - the applied decorative four corners on the top resemble rays from the sun.. The box has a workable spring loaded slide latch. Size of the box is 5 3/4" tall X 11 1/2" wide X 8" in depth. It has a wider base that has a piece missing in two of the corners (one in the front left corner and one in the back right corner). Grooved molding design all the way around. Nailed construction. There are some scrapes in the stain and a few gouges. Great solid piece from the past and a must for the serious collector.
