Merry Christmas 1902

tramp box top view

This family tramp box was loved and saved in various, inhospitable locations throughout it’s long life. It was originally covered with patterned velvet material that had deteriorated. I wanted to replace the velvet with another decorative element and had copper in mind when luckily I found these hand-painted, copper sheets at a garage sale. Amazing match! I cherish it’s history and how it represents love of family from generations past. “Merry Christmas 1902” is written inside the box.
