Small 17th century oak bible box

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

A small oak bible box with a carved pair of demilunes on its face.

The top is embellished with a simple moulding on front and back.

The strap hinges appear to be original; the hasp that once secured the lid is missing.

Two cleats have been attached to the underside of the lid to prevent splitting.

English, ca. 1690.

Dimensions: 20" X 11-1/2"; only 8" tall
