Oak candle box with sliding lid

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A small box of dovetailed construction. The lid is chamfered and slides easily into the rabbets planed into the inner surfaces of three sides. A tiny, gouged mortise in the lid simplifies opening the box with a thumb or a finger.

Good condition, with minor repairs to the sides of the box. Very pleasing figure in the oak.

English, 1720 – 1740
