This is not a delicate little wall pocket made of thin cigar box wood; rather, it is quite a solid and sturdy wall box that could hold some weight (like, say, a collection of old wooden kitchen spoons.) The gold paint that highlights every chip carved notch on the stacked layers gives it a really nice graphicness and also enhances its sense of volume--10 stacked layers on the front, 6 on each side. C. 1940s I believe, brown stained with a little craquelure to the finish here and there, with a nice big hole for hanging.
8 7/16" t x 8 3/8" w x 5 3/8" d and in very good condition, study and sound. Weighs almost two pounds.
