This is a rare motto ware box.
It is made of wood with a transfer printed motto of Old Lang Syne.
What is rare about this box is that there two knobs in the front.
On each end of the box are the words "Questions" and "Answers".
When the question knob is turned, a question like "Are you fond of kissing?"
Then , if you turn the answer knob, there can be an answer like" I'd rather not say."
When the lid of the box is lifted, there are six spool holders and a label for Clark and Co. threads.
A very interesting motto ware box.
Condition: The motto ware print on the top is missing about half of the print, although the motto is still legible.
The box has some age wear on the wood and bottom, but nothing defacing.
Size: 7 by 2 7/8 by 1 3/4 inches.
