A001 – A table top, oak storage box in the form of a kennel with a spelter hound on a chain. It is embellished with decorative round head nails and metal bosses. The kennel is mounted to the original platform which is raised on turned wood feet. One of the decorative nails is missing from a back corner at the very top and is not readily noticeable. A label inside (not the one in the photo) identifies the piece as coming from Zimberg in Paris. Probably late 19th century. At its widest point the base measures 9 1/4 inches across and it is 11 5/8 inches from front to back and is 8 inches in height.
