Laquer box - Wood - 1920's

This is a beautiful calamander ebony bridge/poker card box (high gloss polished) containing 4 wooden boxes filled with bone chips. The chest is decorated with strips of bone and in a setting of 4 playing cards of bone on the lid. The box is in used condition, but certainly good and collectable, given the age of 100 years. Please see the photos too, they are part of the description. The box is sturdy and closes firmly. The dimensions are 80 mm high, 185 mm wide and 265 mm long.

DDG Hansa, short for Deutsche Dampfschiffahrts-Gesellschaft "Hansa" (German Steamship Company Hansa; in modern spelling, Deutsche Dampfschifffahrts-Gesellschaft "Hansa") was a major German shipping company, specializing in heavy freight and planned traffic between Europe and the Far East. Founded in Bremen in 1881, the company was declared bankrupt in 1980.

The box will be packaged well before shipping. Will be sent with track & trace.
