A wonderful glove, jewelry or documents box (this size and shape was originally used for gloves), from the carvers of old 19th century Swiss Black Forest region artisans of finest talent. This box is large, nearly 12 long and is in remarkably nice condition for age and type.
Carved in flowers throughout, it has the old original moire silk lining still intact. Some light staining of years, but not too tattered for its years. The hardware is engraved, lets us know this was a finest quality item in its time from a fine maker.Hinged to lift up and away and expose the pairs of gloves the original owner would have had kept within. People love using these for documents, old letters, jewelry, and well, gloves.
If you've followed us for a while you know I'm a big fan of the old hand carved "Black Forest" items that come to us from 19th century Switzerland, Germany, parts of France and Italy, where they pleased the Grand Tour tourists and still please us all today. These hand carved treasures range from whimsical small bears to large and elaborate mantel clocks, wall clocks, wall plaques showing the most awesome anatomical studies of stag, fowl, "fruits of the hunt". I've got more to list so look through the vast collection.I've just used quite a few piece in our own 2nd home decoration , Rocky Mountains location, and love the look as well as the heritage since my own ancestors hail from that region and others. The pieces work well in Country Manor, French Country, Ski Lodge or Hunt Lodge and even in a den or office. Everything from a pocket watch case to huge plaques - from needle and thread holders to cigar caddy - these decorative objects survive today a testament to the artisan's craft of carving wood. Very good to excellent condition for age and type. Our photos show you its condition is lovely, and that it remains with working lock and the old original working key in place. I find no serious chips to report. Might be a tip to a flower petal, something tiny, and you'll review our photos to find those if any exist. No evidence of any wood worm infestation, and no restorations to note. Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images.
