Antique Bug / Cricket Box / Hand Made Rustic Early American
Antique Bug / Cricket Box / Hand Made Rustic Early American . It is really a wonderful little box with a sliding door on the top that has a glass window . Then on the side there is a hole that has a piece that slides over it to close it. I am not sure if this suppose to be an air hole or a hole to poke the bug through once caught. It is put together with nails. The lid has been carved. There is an depression for a finger hold then someone added s slotted screw to grab to hele with sliding it open.
It is 5" x 4.75" and 3.5" . Other then some rust stains in the wood .. it is great old condition. I realize that am asking top dollar for it... but it is unique and quite adorable. It is a wonderful little piece probably own by a young boy to collect and keep bug for pets or to study them. Maybe to use in fishing too.
