Bentwood Box, USA

Bent wood box
Wood, paint
5.5" (14 cm) wide, 2" (5 cm) high

Oval bent wood box with finger joint construction has a tromp l'oeil painting on a green ground. The bottom is signed Joe Watson and the crack on the lid is stable and clean, not at all as gruesome as it looks in the bottom photo.
