Leather Clad Document Box

N. Europe, 1650-1700

Pine, leather. Charming little box in as-found conditon -- the leather worn, torn and crackled -- just as we like to see it. Brass nails holding leather and forming initials IB on lid. Leather hinge-piece is old replacement, brass appears to be later (but not by much), no restoration.

13-3/4" w x 9-1/2" d x 6-3/4" h.
