This early 19th Century poplar box has square-nail construction and the original hinges and lock (the hasp and key are missing). It measures 27" long, 13 3/4" wide and 9 3/4" tall. It was originally painted in a wavy black over a brick red background.

The wonderful lion decoration on the lid is likely mid-20th Century and done in the "Peaceable Kingdom" style.

The box shows its age but the decorated surface is in very good condition.

For ease of display we made a conforming base frame which stands 15" tall. The base is included in the price but does significantly increase the shipping cost. We will quote shipping with your interest.
