No reproduction without prior written consent. We’ll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our’Favorites’ customers. 1860-80s “old style” jewelry casket with working lock and key in place. Both of those superb carved birds up top are in excellent condition, as is the entire box’s carving, really. I see a few rubs, but no substantial chips or loss to all of that deep bas relief carving. This forest style is considered the older ones for BF carvings. Far more work than later ones, and of course more sought after. Measurements are noted on the photos, but it’s 11″ widest, 7.25″ front to back, and 8.5 tall when closed. Very good to excellent as noted above. The interior has been lined with a leather or leather-like material (seems like leather to me) and there is a red narrow stripping applied as an accent, or perhaps to make it a quiet closure? It’s just applied to the rims so could be removed. It’s really quite pretty as it is, however, so we’ll leave it this way. Look closely at those 2 birds. Not even a beak break. So rare, and these are very delicately carved. Don’t miss it! We’re easy to deal with. You are very important! Our fine inventory is very important.
