This box came to us with two vintage labels marking it as a piece made by a German prisoner of war at Camp Grant outside of Rockford, Illinois during WWII. The workmanship is excellent on this special box with red velveteen fabric covered sides and interior. It has a brass handle, lock and escutcheon. The box has decorative brass flowers throughout. The piece has the traditional hallmarks of a tramp art piece, with hand cut pieces of scrap wood stacked in geometric patterns. The box has the additional decorative detail of brass flowers throughout.
