Description

Circular box and lid. The side wall is made from a single strip of wood bent around a circular base with metal nails joining the two together. Nails are also used to pin the side wall to itself where it overlaps. A lid is made in the same style but slightly larger and shorter as to fit over the box. Undecorated.
