Gothic Skulls Devil Box Unusual Vintage Goth Emo Bone Victorian Georgian For Sale

Gothic Skulls Devil Box   Unusual Vintage Goth Emo Bone Victorian Georgian

TRULY UNUSUAL BOX.THE BOX IS OF WOOD,IT IS A HARDWOOD BUT VERY LIGHT,THE WOOD HAS BEEN VARNISHED AND POSSIBLY LAQUERED.PLEASE READ CONDITION ABOVE.

THE BOX HAS SEEN REGULAR USE,HOWEVER IT OPENS AAN CLOSES WELL AND THE HINGES ARE INTACT.THE TOP HAS 2 HAND CARVED SKULLS LFET AND RIGHT,BOTH ARE VERY WORN BUT THE DETAIL IS QUIET VISIBLE,BOTH SKULLS SEEM ANATOMICALLY CORRECT RATHER THAN A REPRESENTATION OF A HUMAN SKULL AND ARE NOT IDENITICAL AND SEEM TO HAVE BEEN CARVED.

BETWEEN THEM IS A SMALL BONE/IFORY/HORN MOTTIF STATING DEOFOL.AT FIRST I THOUGHT THIS THE NAME OF THE OWNER,BUT AFTER SOME RESEARCH IT SEEMS THAT THIS WORD IS OLD SAXON ENGLISH FOR DEVIL OR DEMON.

THE TRAY INSIDE THE TOP IS LINED WITH WALLPAPER OR SIMILAR,2 BRASS SCREWS ARE VISIBLE,I PRESSUME THAT THEY SECURE THE SKULLS.A LOCK PIN HAS BEEN REMOVED AND THE HOLES FOR IT ARE VISIBLE.

THE EXTERIOR OF THE BOTTOM OF THE BOX HAS A BONE/IFORY/HORN SHIELD CUT INTO THE WOODEN FACIA.INSIDE IS ANOTHER STORY,THE SHIELD SEEMS TO COVER A LOCK WHICH HAS BEEN REMOVED AND THE GAP FILLED.THE FLOOR OF THE BOX IS LINED WITH PAGES FROM A BIBLE. FROM WHAT I CAN ASCERTAIN IT LOOKS TO BE PAGES FROM A WESLYN BIBLE OR SIMILAR.THE PAGES HAVE BEEN VARNISHED OR SIMILAR FINISH CAUSING THE PAPER TO HARDEN,THE MAJORITY OF THE PAGES ARE STILL FIRM ONLY IN A FEW MINOR PLACES HAS THE PAPER RISEN AWAY FROM THE BASE,THE ONLY REAL DAMAGE IS HISTORICAL AND HAS BEEN DEALT WITH.

THE STLYE OF BOX WAS REASONABLY COMMON IN GEORGAIN AND VICTORIAN PERIODS,I WOULD GUESS IT MAY HAVE STATRED LIFE AS A GLOVE /JEWELLREY BOX.MY BEST GUESS FOR ITS CONSTRUCTIONWOULD BE 1820-1900'S AS FOR THE DECORATION AND CARVINGS I HAVE NO EVIDENCE TO STATE WHEN THEY WERE ADDED.

A VERY STRANGE AND CURIOUS ITEM FOR THE COLLECTOR
