Offering this Victorian hairpin box made of wood with an inlay of carved wood design and either composition or ivory scalloped diamond shaped section. The wood I believe is ebony. What amazes me is the hinge which is the full length of the box and appears to have alternating sections carved out of both the top and bottom then attached and a pin going through both sections. I have never seen this before. That must have been some accomplishment. The box also has 3 very small worm holes in it. Due to it being wood it must has some warp in it as the box will close snugly but pop open when released. Very unusual box that I estimate to circa between 1850 & 1890. Measures 3.75 x 1.75" x 1". In very good condition for it's age as no cosmetic damage but being sold in an as is condition. Can be shipped with Priority or First Class mail in the 1 pound or under category of whatever is least expensive or your preference.
