This deeply carved and painted box stands on integral reverse tapered feet and measures 12 1/2" by 8 3/4" by 7 3/4" tall.

The box uses mortise and tenon joinery of thick walled sides and top allowing the deep carvings enhanced with green red and gold paint on a brown background.

We like the bold carvings and dramatic use of paint.

The condition is good with some abrasion to the top edges, a small loss to the back side carving and evidence on the front and back panels where the carving exposed the mortises for the inside divider.

We suspect the box is Scandinavian.
