Prison art box, 1950s-1960s
4-½ x 5-½ x 5-½ inches
One of the nicest examples of Prison Art Cigarette Box I have seen. This one is made from Kools cigarette packs. Has nice age and a “dirt” layer on it. Was probably in someone’s garage for a time. Probably circa late 1950s early 1960s (based on the Kools design). Purchased it from Brimfield. Was a real find. The weaving is elaborate. The bottom of the box flares out and becomes the feet. Really ingenious.
