Hand-painted wooden footed box, with removable lid. Vibrant reds, blues, greens, and yellows on the lid, with tulip shapes suggesting a possible Pennsylvania Dutch connection or inspiration. The sides also have hand-painted decorations. Finger/box joints. Bright red painted interior, and two compartments inside. Measures 5 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. NOTE: besides some overall age/wear, there is an even horizontal split above the feet at the front — it extends about 2/3 of the way toward the back of the box. I believe it should be easily repairable with appropriate adhesive.
