Carved Book Box

Presented here, a fabulous carved Book Box . . . the nicest we have seen! The carving is very deep and extremely well done, showing the artistry of the carver in both concept and execution. This is Folk Art at its finest!

The initials L.M. and the date 1849 are carved into the box.


The interior is lined with red velvet and is very clean. Most likely some book such as a prayer book or bible was stored in the box but it could just as easily held letters or other treasures.  9 inches long x 6-1/4 inches wide x 3" deep while the interior compartment is 6 inches 3-1/3 inches x 1-1/2" deep.
