130-140 year old antique dome top trinket or dresser box with brass straps. This antique box c1880-90 is slightly larger than a recipe card box and would be a great choice for storage and decor in home. It would make a handsome dresser box for the guys and will also go with several primitive decorative style such as country and farmhouse.
Please view ALL 10 of our photos to see the condition of this early little box.
The box measures 4 5/8" tall to the top of the dome lid and 2 7/8" tall to the top edge of the box bottom. The box measures 7 7/8" long and 5" wide.
The box does not lock. I am not sure why. I took photos of what is left of the locking mechanism on the box. There appears to have been something decorative on the front of the box my guess is some fancy brass work to match the straps. The box has a hairline on one of the side panels. See photo 4. This does not affect the integrity of the box. One of the box hinge pins was replaced with a piece of wire. See photo 9. Box opens and closes perfectly. Whoever did this quick fix, did a neat little repair.
