Wonderful early folk art box measures 11″ x 9 1/2″ x 6 and is made of heavy wood and is close to 5 LBS. Beautifully hand made with great detail and great patina. Not sure the original use, perhaps a sewing box, or ballot box? It has 2 swing handles on the sides, and a drawer on the end. The drawer opens (a bit tight), and the drawer pull is missing. On the top of the box is a post that may have held a spool of thread or yarn and a small box with dividers, (one is lose), with great painting of stars and blue and white design. This box is incredibly made with great details and is all original. There are some chips in the spool holder and the circle on the top of the box, so please see the pictures for the description of the condition. A really great find! Thank you for looking!
