Antique Handmade Intensely Pyrographed Triangular Box with Woman Wearing Cross

Regular price $48.00

I pass by a lot of old pyrographed boxes as the imagery tends to be fairly repetitive, but this one is its own special thing--unusual in its triangular shape, intensely decorated with tiny pin prick marks all over, and with this lovely portrait of a woman with cross on top, looking herself intense in her devotion, which makes me think perhaps the box was made to hold a rosary. With cloth hinges secured with nice fat nails, and a patina that makes one feel it was prized and used.

Each side of the triangle measures 4 1/2" long' 2 15/16" tall. Hinges well attaches and overall very good condition, with a little softening to the points of the corners, just right.
