Antique European Alto Relievo Carved Softwood Box - Vines & Grapes - Swiss c1900 (Code 2852)
A very attractive softwood box with an alto relievo carved lid. It appears to be in lime wood and is probably Swiss dating around 1900-20. The work is of a high standard with lovely detail to the twisted vine trunk. At this size it was most likely intended as a jewellery box or table trinket box. There is a lock, but no key so the locking mechanism is untested. The base has green felt which is likely a later addition. The interior has a golden yellow tone.
General period wear, some losses to the leaves in places but nothing which spoils the item. No key, lock untested. All in keeping with age.
