We are offering an Unusual Vintage Folk Art Wooden Matchstick Jewelry Box. 7 1/8" L x 7 1/8" W x 6 H. This box is meticulously made with over 1,000 matchsticks to form geometric designs on the top, sides, front and back of the box.
Many cut into graduating lengths in order to form an intricate pattern, are placed horizontally, while others are placed vertically, to create an interesting design. The box appears to have been lightly shellacked to a rich finish.It must have taken a person many months of continuous work to create this box. The box has brass hinged clasps, and when the cover is lifted, a drawer is revealed (5 3/4" x 4"), with a diamond-shaped mirror above it. The inside of the box, the drawer and the underside of the cover are lined on all sides with velvet the color of pink champagne and cream. A glass heart with two 3-dimensional roses inside of it decorates the front of the drawer. The cover of the box is decorated with a carved wooden heart that has a flower made of ruby-colored glass in the center of the heart. The cover has a two-toned wooden handle for easy lifting. The underside of the box is covered in red felt, as are the four "legs" to protect the dresser or table it sits on. CONDITION: Box is in Excellent + Condition.
