Early 19th Century Oval German Bandbox

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.

My living room 2018

Make sure to click on each picture to see the entire picture and its description! Finally! I have gotten a chance to take some pics of my home. Most of these pictures are of my living room that is set up as a lawyer's office from the early 1800s. (Yes! I am crazy!) This first pic is what you see when you walk into my living room and look to the right.
