Antique Hand Carved Wooden w/Colonial Figures. Jewelry Sewing Keepsake Treasure Box. This Antique ornately carved wooden box is in fantastic estate condition.There are some minor imperfections which are expected with pieces of this age. The box is hinged on one side. The hinges are in good working condition. The elaborately carved Maple type leaves are in an upward flare surrounding all sides. The top of the box is framing delicately carved Colonial dressed figures of a man and woman.
The details are magnificant as well as minute. The draperies surrounding the figures change on the two sides. Notice the ribbons in the womans hair and one ribbon floating in the air as if falling. The gentleman is caring his trifold hat and there is a sword on his right side. He is also wearing what may be a wig.The more you look at the carvings the more minute details you will find. Certainly someone in the distant past had a flair for surprises when they carved this box. On one corner of the box there is some damage.
The repair has been made with what looks like some type of wood putty. The repair is satisfactory if it is not pointed out; it is not easily seen. Also on one side it appears to be some termite damage to the leaves.I have owned this piece for over 25 years and have never seen any further damage. At one time there was a key as the lock mechanism is visible.
The inside of the box has been glued but the damage is not severe. On the left-hand side of the top there is a very small gap. I have tried to take close-up pictures of all of these mentioned areas, please look at the attached pictures as they are in integral part of the listing and description.
Last picture has three rulers as a visual representation of size. The box is approximately 16 inches long, 12 inches wide, and 6 inches deep. If you would like additional pictures, please let me know I will certainly send them to you.This Antique hand carved box with Colonial Figures will be a wonderful addition to your home or collection. It will certainly be admired by your friends and family. Perhaps it will be a special gift for someone special in your life or for yourself as you also deserve the very best.
