Charming 19th century Pennsylvania Dutch wedding keepsake box, containing a woven hair memento. The diminutive circular wood box features a painted lid depicting two doves perched on two hearts; they hold a device in their beaks (a wreath or a ring). There is a motto painted along the perimeter; I believe it’s in German but can’t decipher it! Wear to paint surface a losses to wood lip. Measures 2 1/4” in diameter.
