PATRIOTIC BOX – intricately carved – with Iron cross motif
During the Imperial German Period, all types of patriotic boxes were proudly displayed in many homes. This increased during WW I, when patriotism rose to extreme levels. Our box measures 8″ x 6″ x 3/4.” It has been intricately carved with designs of all sorts on three sides (its back panel is plain) and its lid. The lid displays a plain black Iron Cross, which is about the size of a normal Iron Cross. A small metal knob helps one lift the box lid. Its interior is trimmed in green leatherette. The uses for this box are limited only by your imagination.
