Vintage Bentwood or Band Box With Inlaid Decorated Lid Made in America
Description: A beautiful vintage American band box. The shallow box has a band wood side, which is attached to a wooden base with what appears to be square wooden pegs. The lift off lid is also made of a band wooden side attached to the top with the same pegs. The top of the lid is decorated with triangles and diamonds and a circle of lighter wood which has been inlaid into the base wood of the lid. The top and bottom of the box are made of darker wood than the sides. Just a beautiful piece, which we believe is a modern reproduction of such old boxes used in old pantries in the eastern part of the US. Please view photos as they are part and parcel of our description.
Date: Mid to late 1900's
Size: Measures 1 3/8" in height with lid on and is 7 1/4" in diameter.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is beautiful box worthy of a spot in your collection of band boxes or kitchen implements.
Condition: Box is in good condition with no breaks or repairs. It does have scratches and minimum general soiling commensurate with its age. The box is clean on the inside and is in great shape and solid. It could probably use a nice cleaning, but we will leave that to the discretion of the new owner. Please see photos to appreciate the beauty and condition of this exquisite box.
