Vintage wooden box for trinkets cigarettes cards Galleon sailing ship sea c1950s
Vintage wooden box with nautical theme. Picture of a sailing ship on the lid - this appears to be a transfer picture, and parts of it have rubbed off, exposing the wood beneath. Little green "handle" on the front of the lid, which is made of a sort of hard plastic. Probably made around the 1950s, judging by the style. Plain interior.
Size: 5.5" x 3.75" x 1.75" (13 x 9 x 4.5 cm) approx. when closed.
Weight: 160g approx.
This box is half a century old, and is still in working order, but it has clearly been used rather than left empty on a shelf, so it has acquired a few "battle scars" over the years.
The basic construction is still sound, but there are small areas of the picture which have rubbed off, probably due to over-enthusiastic cleaning.
The hinges still work well, but could do with a small adjustment, to stop the lid from sitting at a slight angle, as shown.
Some stains and scuffs on the wood.
Chip at the edge of the base, at the back, as shown.
