Vintage Pyrography Wood Glove Box

Vintage Pyrography Wood Glove Box


In the early 1900's Pyrography was the art of decorating wood or leather with a heated tool to burn the design onto the object. This box is a perfect example of how charming this decorative style could be with its depiction of young cherubs playing musical instruments. It was most likely used to hold gloves or hankies and proudly displayed on top of the dresser in the early American home. There's a fabulous edge detailing around the entire cover and box edges. The reverse side of the top is decorated also so it could be displayed open.

This darling box is in wonderful condition with no cracks or other issues. On the two back sides are hinged antique brass fittings that allow the top to be lifted easily and set back down when not in use.

Use it for whatnots, note cards, or your own hankies or gloves on your dresser top or at the office on your desktop - it is sure to be a conversation piece and it's just too pretty to stash away!
