Lovely antique Black Forest hand carved 12.5" wide sewing or work box, a wonderful casket with two hinged lids, ornate pierced or reticulated style and wonderful condition! We think this is a sewing box, the style similar to those we've had in the past. The interior lined with the original red silk or satin though it is somewhat tattered & torn. It looks like there may have been a center handle that is no longer there, I'd thought to put an ormolu one on but decided to just list it as it came to us from France. A lovely decorative box, don't miss it.
Good to very good condition. Just as you see it, no breaks or damage to the box itself but the interior lining is tattered. As stated, there may have been a center basket style handle that is no longer there. See pictures for all measurements.
