This wonderful early carved wooden knife box features a handle in the form of the Masonic Square that reads LODGE No 48. The box dates from the late 19th to early 20th century and it was found in mid Missouri. The box also features a design on each side of the Masonic Square with a winged device perched atop. The box is entirely pierced with fretwork carving and it retains virtually 99% of the original painted finish. The wood appears to be pine, the form is rare and the surface is untouched with an excellent patina.
