This old box would feel right at home in a library or study filled with old books, leather club chairs and maybe a fireplace ( wafting cigar smoke, too!) I'd guess it might have been made as a card box (I believe two decks would fit inside), but would be good for all sorts of things. The leather is wonderfully worn to a warm dark brown and it just has a great feeling to it.
The leather hinge connecting the lid to base on the back side is mostly split but one wouldn't know it when closed. Otherwise just perfectly distressed. 6" x 3 5/8" x 1 3/4".
