And Four Months ’till Boxing Day

Arts & Crafts Quarter-Sawn-Oak Box (LEO Design)

And, if yesterday marked four months ’till Christmas, today marks four months ’till Boxing Day—the day when (traditionally) English servants and tradesmen would get the day off—and maybe a present—from their employers.

Speaking of boxes, the one pictured above—made of quarter-sawn oak in the early Twentieth Century—is very handsome, indeed.  The oak strapping and brass mountings punctuate its strong American Mission design.
