    Default 2 little wooden boxes - SS GEB. DIV. Nord - Karelien 1943 Weichnachten

    Actually these boxes are not a trench art but made as a present boxes (I have heared they were for tobacco) to the fighters of SS Geb. Div Nord for Christmas 1943. The origin is not quite sure but as these boxes are made of the Karelian birch they are probably produced in Finland. There are at least 2 different sizes. I know some forum members have similar boxes in their collection, feel free to post pictures!

    i think this was a christmas gift sponsored by the nord div. for members of the nord . they were filled with tobacco or cigarettes.

    the boxes are handcrafted , and in my opinion they were made by seveval local dealers in karelia .

    the seizes are different because of the birchwood ..

    i had at least 3 boxes , and i saw 4 others in internet or collector friends...
