The barting has 4 rows of wood attached around the room and painted in green. It seems to use the same folding wood technique as most of the other Norwegian tin boxes I sell in my shop. On the basis, the brand of the farm is engraved in the wood with the initials of the artist.They used the mark so that if the room were each lost or loaned, it would find its way back to its owner. The room is in a beautiful old world with signs of wear due to use and age. Would be beautiful as a ship to hold dried flowers (as I did) or as a stand-alone room or as part of a collection of decorative boxes displayed in your home. 14.5 cm in diameter at the top. 16.5 cm in diameter at the base. Shipping for this item includes tracking and insurance.
