#2 Antique Walnut Wood Victorian Hankie / Glove Box W Drawer & Carved Escutcheon:
Antique Victorian era glove or hankie box with drawer. Hand made from beautiful, dark, solid walnut long ago by a skilled carpenter or furniture maker. (The inner parts are solid poplar wood). The drawer is hand dovetailed (see photos ) and has a keyhole and metal lock. Wonderful hand carved, leaf shaped escutcheon around the keyhole. The drawer slides in and out easily. Lots of patina and character has collected in this piece over the years. There is normal wear to the edges and finish for its age (see photos for details). Part of the escutcheon is missing and there is a piece of wood split off of the outer box at the right side of the drawer. Both of these seem to have been missing for a long time because the finish matches the rest of the piece in these areas. The key is long lost and there is a piece of wood directly above the drawer that is missing, so the lock does not work at this time. This would be a beautiful storage piece or organizer in your kitchen, office or any other room in the house. It originally was attached to the top of a dresser or chest and can also be used as a replacement part. Outer measurement overall is 16" x 12" x 4.5". Outer measurement of the drawer is 13.75" x 8 1/8" x 3". WE HAVE A MATCHING DRAWER UP FOR SALE IN A SEPARATE LISTING AND LOVE TO COMBINE SHIPPING! They could be used side by side, or in a stack.
