Blue Painted Desk/Table Box

Blue Painted Desk/Table Box. This is a wonderful desk/table box in original blue paint. The box is constructed with snipe hinges and square nails. When the lid is opened it reveals cubbies and dividers and the lid becomes a writing surface. If the box is used as a table box the lid would function in the usual manner. The cubbies would act as packing slots. I do believe this box may have been made for traveling. The desk/box measures 20 x 12 x 10 1/2 inches.
