About this Item

N.d., circa 1900. Measuring 198 by 160 by 33 mm. The oval color print on the top lid is 140 by 93 mm at the widest points. The bottom and edges are white, with a plastic sheen. The edges have a Medieval diaper type of decoration, with slightly raised detailing, and it seems the type of decoration that would have been applied to a candy box, but there is no brand ad on this box. The box is secured shut with a brass clasp, and within there is a doily edge trim, also suggestive of a prior use to house candy, or perhaps cookies. Light soiling to the edges, and other light to moderate wear. Still a very handsome, and distinctive, faux book box. Bookseller Inventory # 004558

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
