A beautiful filigree wooden box with three or four different tones of wood, hand decorated and painted, depicting floral/leafy swirls and two little birds in the centre. Cute little border around the top of the box too and little wooden feet on the bottom to raise it up so it sits really nicely on a desk or dressing table. Two compartments inside, one slightly larger than the other. Ideal for storing runes or small witchcraft tools, jewellery, little secret notes... It measures 14cm by 10.5cm by 4.5cm (excluding the feet) so is a decently sized little box and you can fit a surprising amount of treasure inside! This is a vintage piece and in remarkably good shape for its age, the only slight flaws are a very small misalignment when the box is closed (barely noticeable, see photographs) and a couple of holes in the base where I think it might have once had a little music box attachment, which just makes it extra charming. A lovely little box that I almost kept for myself.
