Here is a sweet little pencil box with wonderful brown sponged over yellow paint decoration. It has machine cut dovetails and once it had a divider inside. There is a simple latching mechanism behind a painted heart escutcheon. It measures 8” long x 1 ½” tall x 2 ½” inches deep. Last quarter 19th century to early 20th century. This is a great top of the stack box or use it for what it was made for—a desk accessory! Great stocking stuffer!
