A beautiful European vintage chip carved box with floral designs, this is in an unusual form with two compartments with sliding lids. The box measures approx. 8 1/4" by 4" by 1 1/2", and each compartment is approx. 3" by 3 1/2" by 1". The box is made of a light hardwood and was carved in one of the Scandinavian countries, Germany or possibly Russia (I favor Scandinavia as the point of origin, as Germany more usually uses dark woods). The box is ideal for holding checkers pieces (the pieces in the photo are not part of the sale, but are being used as a photo prop only) or other small objects. The condition of the box is excellent with some very minor age and use related surface wear and tiny denting, these are only noticeable under very close examination and the box is attractive, unique and sturdy, see photos as part of the description.
