Found at a countryside market in France, we are pleased to offer this delightful carved wooden box with swing handle. Lovingly crafted in greatest detail, we are particularly taken by the intricate woodworking of this piece. With all the stylistic hallmarks of the wood carvings from the Fôret Noir or Black Forest region of France and Germany, this hand-carved box is beautiful in its craftsmanship.

With a natural, charming aesthetic, we believe this unlined box was originally fashioned to safe-keep sewing materials. Carefully hand-carved with the initials AG on the lid of the box while scalloped sunbursts encircle it, the basketweave design is certainly impressive as rope detail and pretty blossoms dress the lid.

The most darling swing handle is adorned with a single carved blossom and once allowed for ease of carrying. The front and back of the box have been carved with little hearts for a sweetly romantic touch. The box originally locked by means of an ingenious sliding wooden latch underneath the lid, but that locking mechanism is no longer functional. 

Sure to lovingly keep your precious jewelry and handsome belongings in true fashion, this vintage piece is at once rustic and refined, sharing its naturalistic beauty even still.

Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In good vintage condition with a worn lock from age and use. 8 3/4" x 4 1/8", 6" tall with handle. Interior compartments measure 5 5/8" x 4 5/8" with two 1 3/4" x 2 1/8" compartments.
