A stunning example of Swedish history. This is a rare, dated and initialed antique Swedish writing box with original hand painted folk art flowers. The inside is painted with a little storage compartment at one end.
The front of the writing box is hand painted with the date "1807" with the initials of the original owner "B,A,D". The condition is exceptional given its age, with the original hinges in excellent order.
