Antique wooden box is hand made using square nail construction, leather trim banding straps, and brass tacks, circa 19th Century primitive Folk Art . The box is hinged and has an iron lock with a brass swivel. The lock appears to have been added for decorative purposes or maybe as a disguise. It has old paint on the outside except the bottom. It is unlined with writing on the inside lid that is not legible and the wood has a wonderful grain and original hardware. It measures 14 inches wide by 6.50 inches deep by 5.75 inches high and weighs about 3 pounds. The box has normal wear appropriate for its age. It is clean, odor free, and ready to be enjoyed. I believe this was a child's tool or play box in its day. It has endless possibilities. It could be used as a child's tool box for crayons and small items, a storage or document box, a vanity box for a gentleman and it would be ideal to hold TV remotes putting them out of sight. Last of all it is a great gift idea that would be welcomed and memorable.
