From the early 1900's, an old wooden chalk or crayon box in a putty paint. Paint is worn and rather grungy which makes it even more primitive. Inside is natural wood. A fun box to add to your country farmhouse decor.
The box is 9-1/2" in length x 5-1/2" wide x 3-1/2" high.
Nailed construction, the box has a sliding lid with thumb notch for opening and closing. Lid fits tight in the grooves so it binds some when sliding. A small split of wood at the one side opening.
