This is a gorgeous piece, a tiger maple box with wonderful chunky hand made dovetails and outstanding inlay of a branch with leaves on the top within a detailed inset frame and rectangular inserts on all four sides each with fan shaped inlays at all four corners. The antique box was probably used as a sewing box as the inside top is covered in tufted velvet. I believe this velvet pincushion was added at a later date as the construction looks newer than the box; it also may have had a tray. The box is 4 1/2 inches tall, 7 3/4 inches long, and 5 inches deep and had an escutcheon at one point. There's a little wear, a few scratches, and a few tiny splits in the wooden surfaces from expansion and contraction over time.; the top doesn't close quite flush. All of this is very minor; the box is beautiful.
