Antique Black Forest Wood Carving Jewelry Box Oil Painting Edelweiss Stag Signed 1945. It is used for trinkets, jewelry, and other items. It looks like two books. When flat, the top book opens to reveal four compartments. The lower book has a drawer which pulls out. It was probably a Christmas gift as it was signed Schweiger Dec 24, 1945, just after WWII. Often, when provisions were tight, people would use old things and paint them or carve them to use as gifts. The box predates the signature date. The top of box (cover of book) is decorated with an oil painting of a floral and edelweiss decor. The inside of the lid shows a beautiful majestic bugling stag (also an oil painting) in a mountain setting. It measures 5 3/8″ tall, 13″ wide, and 10 1/4 deep. Four feet for the box to stand on. Shows age wear but good used condition. Lid and drawer open and close as if they were new. See photos for further condition detail.
