Miniature Make-Do Folk Art Tack and Pin Box with Birds Drawn by Hand





A tiny "make-do" handmade folk art box for holding tacks and pins. Only three inches wide and two inches tall, the box is constructed from cardboard, the "handles" are small brads. I presume made by a child, possibly as a gift for the parents? Circa 1920 or so. Scarlet Tanager, Baltimore Oriole and Goldfinch.

  1. The box looks like it was made from small matchboxes.

  2. It is indeed constructed around matchboxes. Waste not, want not. Thanks for contributing!
