Carved Tobacco Box Swiss Alps Chalet Black Forest Walnut
This beautifully carved walnut container depicts a chalet in raised relief. Who the artist is and when it was crafted is unknown, but it appears to have considerable age. This wooden container appears to be made of walnut, the subject of a chalet in the Swiss Alps suggest that this was made in Europe (circa 1900) using black forest walnut.
There is a small nick on the roof eave, and the lid has a slight wobble when placed, but there are no cracks. There is wear to the finish on top, but considering its age I would say this box is in great condition.
This wooden box was probably intended for tobacco, but it could be used for jewelry, coins, trinkets or a variety of other items.
This will be a great gift for someone special, a beautiful décor piece, or a nice addition to your collection.
