Early 19th Century Oval German Bandbox
An early 19th century German bandbox with 'sewn' construction and a wonderful natural patina. It has a lapped top and is in excellent condition even with its 'make-do' repair of a split in the wood banding. How amazing that that split was repaired with early fabric and that fact may even tell us how the box was used - maybe as a sewing box?
Top measurement - 7" x 12.5" and it stands 4" tall.
