I am offering for sale my very unusual
Antique Hardwood Box
Likely was once used for candles, or some other valuable goods, that needed to be locked away.
Of good dimensions, with external measurments of 35cm x 28cm x 13cm.
Superb as a kitchen herb box.
Now the mystery..........
Constructed from a very hard wood that I can't identify. So hard that you can raise a shine to the timber by simply rubbing. I suspect the timber is not of european origin. It appears that the hinges and lock which are 19th century, are later additions, so this wooden box could be considerably earlier.
Has some cracking as to be expected, but otherwise in fair order.
Difficult to provide you a date, so please study the images, and ask any questions that may assist you.
Please do contact me should you require any further information , thank you.
