‘Black Forrest’ Swiss carved wood Book Box, edelweiss flowers, c. 1880
Good quality Swiss ‘Black Forrest’ type carved wood Book Box, shaped like a leather-bound book, the pages and spine defined, the cover/lid with incised flowers reserved with a panel of life-like edelweiss flowers, the interior lined in pleated silk, on four small ball feet.
Bears a ‘ESZETI MUZIUM’ stamp to the base – appears to be something to do with the Budapest Museum…..
23x16cm, 6cm high
good condition, minor warping to lid – not noticeable as it’s on a ‘page’ line
