Remarkably fine c.1890-1920 Swiss Black Forest carved box, 14" long glove box (typical size/shape) which remains in superb condition inside, and has only 2 flaws notable to the carved wood exterior. Perfect for jewelry or documents, we've noted both exterior and interior measurements on the photos for your review. Beautiful pair of pheasants carved in fine Animalier manner up top and all-over decoration carving.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type, I can point out 3 flaws: 1, front left side corner of lid has a slender 1" long chip, 2. another is a missing trim piece to the right side top, and 3. a restoration to the leaf tips behind the pair of pheasants - each noted in detail photos. The box is very special and displays beautifully, even with the small flaws. The birds, long tail feathers, legs - no damage. Interior is incredibly fine, no stain or odor, silk satin is without any flaw or wear. There is a working lock but we do not have a working key at listing time.
