Details

This tiny little treasure box has a removable lid, with a raised relief design of strawberries and leaves. The bottom part is lined with black fabric. It measures 1 3/4" across the bottom, with a very slight overhand of the lid adding 1/8". It is 1 1/4" wide and is 1/4" deep. Under the lid is ringed to resist sliding off the base. The side of the box is etched as follows: " Blessing on thee, little man, Barefoot boy with cheeks of Tan. And thy merry whistled tunes, With thy red lips redder still, Kissed by strawberries on the hill. " This poetry is summarized from 'The Barefoot Boy' by John Greenleaf Whittier, 1807-1892.
