#5165 - Pyro-Technics Anyone??? : Adapting Old Boxes
Decorating boxes and wall plaques by heat-engraving tools became popular amongst creative ladies caught at home during the Victorian era. The various designs were actually burned-down-into the wood. The glove box shown in this picture is one such vintage piece from an antique mart. And yet, it is a quite practical method of holding historic relics. In this case, snuff boxes and matchsafes from the Nineteenth Century. Also, wooden and cardboard cigar boxes are excellent choices for holding small groups of items, such as bullets, buttons or insignia.
