Scrimshaw Ditty Box

An elaborately fitted ditty box for small objects, this mahogany box is inlaid with patterns in light wood, perhaps boxwood. There is a velvet-lined interior with an enclosed compartment in the lid for necklaces and chains. Four separate boxes are concealed under the main tray. American or English, Nineteenth Century, the box measures approximately eight inches by five inches by five inches and is in excellent original condition.
