Up for sale is a very nice Antique Wooden Dresser Box. Made in Indiana by Artwood Products. Circa 1890s-1920s.

Featuring a Dark Gold/Black Scale design painted on the sides. The lid has a lovely photo behind glass. The photo is of an outdoor gathering scene where a beautiful woman is feeding the birds while others are sitting at a picnic table. The lid also features gorgeous ornate brass gilt handles. The lid does not have hinges and never originally has hinges, It was made for the lid and box to be separate pieces. Underneath the lid is a Mirror with a Beveled design around the border. Inside the box is painted a more yellow-ish shade of gold and has slots. The box has it's original felt on the base along with the original makers/retailers sticker that reads "AN / ARTWOOD / PRODUCT / TERRE HAUTE / INDIANA"

There is some light wear throughout the box as seen in the photos. The right handle of the lid is very slightly loose. It is still secured on there strong enough to use but I have not been using the handles to lift the lid and have been lifting from the corners of the lid instead to avoid any damage and I suggest that you would do the same. Otherwise it is in good condition. It has all of it's original slots on the inside and the original mirror, original felt on the base along with the makers sticker. The box is beautiful and displays very nicely.
