A superb example of an antique tramp art box.
A beautiful & early piece of tramp art, raised on lion paw feet, intricately layered in the traditional manner with notch carved wooden strips & velvet covered panels. Finished with a pressed brass lock escutceon, detailing to the lid & lion ring handles. A superb, early & very original example.
Tramp art was made by untrained artisans during the 19th & 20th century & was made using easily obtained materials such as cigar boxes, natural wood & reclaimed fixtures & fittings. This piece is a wonderful surviving example of such work.
Late 19th century.
Wear commensurate with age with associated minor losses which do nothing to detract. Unrestored.
