A magnificent highly-figured burlwood 1875 dated spruce gum box in book form with a carved spine and various inlays on both the front and back. Cut from a single piece of wood with the interior auger bored and chiseled, the top notched out to accommodate the sliding burlwood lid. Minor lid chip and age checking, and the lid is fairly loose due to shrinkage. Acquired here in Nova Scotia and believed to be of maritime origin.
