This is a pretty Italian military box made from solid beech during the second half of the 18th century. This type of box was often given as a gift to celebrate the graduation of cavalry cadets. The box is decorated with hand painting patterns depicting hearts and foliage surrounding the central medallion with a cavalryman and the inscription Anno 1775. Wear consistent with age and use. Note the hinges on the doors are not original and were replaced at some point. Circa date 1775. Dimensions 18½"high/ 14½"wide/ 9½".
