Please look at pictures carefully. Fading, wear, and breakage to quills. I think the yellow ribbons serving as hinges are original, but they could be later additions as the wire could be. Wood is mostly solid and intact.
One small crack near back hinge. There are five holes along rim, two on one side, three on the other.Hinges may have been reinforced or moved over years. Our Native American and First Nation items have been collected from various places--auctions, estate sales, pow wows and craft stores from our travels. Many of our Quill Boxes come from Manitoulin Island, where we spend part of each summer. We hate to let some of these items go but with our children in college, it's time to liquidate some of the collection and share our items with others. Important Information for all items. It will also be double-boxed. Sorry for the expense, but I've had items lost overseas when mailing first class.
