Online Auction Description

Painted metal box, approximately 9” x 6” x 4.5” deep – slightly domed cover. Was made without handles. Hinges work easily; catch needs a little pressure.

Hand painted spray of what looks like dogwood blossoms with dark stems and leaves of varying shades of green on top. The lid is edged with a design of generic leaves and a serpentine line in dull gold. The front echoes the edging with a 3” pattern with only 3 leaves. The other surfaces are not patterned. Matte finish, brick-red background. The surface is not lacquered.

On the outside, bottom, the paint shows scratches and rubbing.

The rest of the box has slight wear to the paint on two front corners. Edges have some tiny dings to the paint. No dents.

Interior is a shiny gold-tone. The bottom shows wear and rust spots (see image for details). This box was used and enjoyed.

As far as I know, it is made of tin, painted or japanned – sometimes called toleware.

Age uncertain. (I've known where it was since early in 1950). Background color is typical of late 19th Century jappaned tin boxes but I doubt it is that old. Let's just call it vintage.
