    Default Feldpostebriefe - WW1 Wooden box?

    Hi, I recently bought this wooden box (23x17x9cm) to store my small WW1 German items (documents, cards, photos etc). The eagle and cross on the front seem to indicate a German WW1/interwar date of manufacture although i'm not sure about the flags as they don't look imperial. It certainly has character - a storage box for letters from soldiers I guess? The artwork is fairly amateurish but the construction is solid - and has a manufacturer's sticker that I can't fully read (Flensburg?). Are these common? Does anyone have anything similar? Thanks Terry

    This appears to be a cigar box that someone has been creative with,
    and added their own artwork. I would say Imperial - or sometime
    after - due to the tri-colour flags.........

    I agree, looks like a cigar box with some added artwork. Looks imperial as well
