CHARACTERFUL BLUE OLD BOX
This stunning characterful blue old box is an unusual vintage storage box which resonates culture, history, place and people. This item of furniture is full of stories of life lived and led – with it’s aged repairs as seen with the metal strip to the lid piecing together an old split. Dramatically, original paint worn through use, including some wonderful aged red hand painted lettering to the underside of the lid. It includes an interior of multiple compartments bring together a warmth and colour of Rajasthan – a stunning small item of furniture.
Mainly blue in colour, but old and rustic, now showing the natural wood colour coming through the paintwork. This lid open up to show 9 small compartments around the edge of the main storage area. My favourite bit of this box is the sliding lid on the right hand side, within the box, which opens to reveal a secret compartment, perfect for hiding a few treasure from sight. There are signs of the trunk having a lock in the past, nor you would need to padlock through the front metal catch. THis trunk sits flat on its base. There is some aged red lettering indie the lid. A stopper has been attached to the back of the trunk to stop it falling open.
A craftbox comes to mind, with the added feature of the 9 compartments towards the top of the box making it ideal for this purpose!
Made in India.

“I would just like to reflect and take the time to say thank you -myself and my husband recently travelled a long way top visit your shop and ordered several pieces of furniture as a result. The pieces arrived so well packaged to protect them, and we were blown away by them when we unpacked them – absolutely stunning. They will provide many, many years of enjoyment.
