    Posting for a friend. Not sure what this is. 4.5" x 3" x 1.25". #977 brings up nothing that matches. Also, not the grapevine or pine needle pattern one usually sees. Found a couple matching larger open boxes but no match to this of any kind. Sellers have not named the pattern. One said it pre-dates the other patterns but have found no proof. I have a guess but would like to see if anyone can find or have other ideas. Thanks!

    there was a discussion about the beaded edges desk set pieces recently on a FB group, supposedly the beaded edge pieces are earlier.

    We don't know. Have not found anything even remotely similar. Have found the larger pen tray you show above in the same pattern but it does not really match the grapevine or pine needle patterns.

    There appears to be a lot of good information in the sites you have posted but not finding anything about this piece. Like those original prices in the catalog!

    Found this picture on Pinterest that has another with the bar (maybe a bit deeper?). Of course no information :(

    Cross bar would be needed if there was a little lid that needed to be supported. Still doesn't make much sense, as there is only one compartment.
