Super Arts & Crafts Fantasy Money Box Wood Fairies Fawns Devil Dancing Folk Art For Sale

Super Arts & Crafts Fantasy Money Box Wood Fairies Fawns Devil Dancing Folk Art

This is for a totallyunique and extremelyeye-catching old arts & crafts wooden money box with a very definite folk art theme. The wood has been carved all over with different woodland fantasy scenes, there are fairies and fawns dancing and playing musical instruments, elves fencing and a pregnant figure on a horse surrounded by a verypaganlooking group. The legs of the box are all decorated with organic flowing mushrooms and the wood is finished all over withcopper rivet appliqués.The hinged lid has a slot in the top for coins and underneath inside isthe original metal swing mechanism that would have stopped the coins coming out when the box was upside down.The box has two copper handles and the base is stamped 'London 1936'. It is a very beautiful box, all hand carved inrelief and it would have taken a great deal of time to carvethe scenes on it. There are four initials carved into the box which look like FWDR. The box is in superb condition, the outside is pristine with no chips or cracks anywhere and a lovely look and patina to the wood and copper, inside is clean too, i think someone had to open it without the key at some time becausethetop little locator of the lock ismissing so it doesn't lock anymore. There is a little bit of wood missing under the lid by where the lock locater was but the lock on the base is still in place and marked 'Legge, Secure Lever'. This and one copper pin missing from the back is the only things i can find on the box, it isotherwise excellent. This is a rare and very unusual box, as soon as you pick it up and look at it and feel it you know what you have got. It measures 140mm (5.3") by 80mm (3.25") and stands 110mm (4.3") tall.
