Stunning Large Vintage 1940s Wooden Box With Royal Standard & Tartanware Pattern:
STUNNING LARGE Vintage 1940s Wooden Box with Royal Standard & Tartanware Pattern
This is a really fantastic and unique old wooden box.
It is made of a softwood like pine - and is vintage probably from about the 1930s or 1940s, on stylistic grounds.
It is a unique piece and you certainly wont find another like it listed on .
The post has been beautifully hand decorated - and I have taken a lot of photographs of it in close up so that you can just see how fabulous all the decoration is - it is decorated to the top, sides, and also the interior.
The top has a very fancy image of the Royal Standard - with a crowned British Lion to the left and a unicorn to the right - the hold up the Royal shield - which has a crown above and topped with a regal lion.
There is a decorative border around the lid - with representations of the rose of England, Thistle of Scotland, Leek of Wales and Shamrocks for Ireland.
The sides have a lovely almost mock mauchline type tartanware all around - with a wavy banding pattern at the top, red where the lid meets the base section of the box - and a carefully delineated tartan or checked pattern below.
The interior is also decorated with a cute abstract pattern as you can see in my photographs - little carefully pinned in brass hinges - a nice detail.
It is highly decorative - and it is certainly a one off piece - it must have taken many hours to decoration his beautiful piece, and it looks just fantastic on display.
A nice larger size too - great for storing previous objects in - as a jewellery box, sewing box or trinket box -
It measures: Length 9 inches (23 cm) Width 6 3/4 inches (17 cm) and depth when closed is 3 3/8 inches (8.6 cm).
It is in perfect condition - with no damages of any kind - beautiful patination and all nicely waxed to keep the wood in tip top condition.
