I have been trying to figure out a way to make my own Pochade Box. My parents are moving and my dad gave me a wood attache-type box with a sturdy handle. Inside is a plexiglass compartment, a hinged wood piece to hold things in place and a couple wood pieces which seem to be there to hold something. I have no idea what the box was for originally.
The name on the inside of the box is
AB SVENSK TRAFINESS
It’s a gorgeous, well made box and I am confident it will work well for a Pochade. The dimensions are 17 1/2″ by 13 1/4″ by 4″ in depth. That is the interior measurement. The wood is 1/2″ thick. It has a piano hinge and has a brass (?) piece surrounding the exterior on both parts. There are four metal peg feet at the bottom of the case. It’s stunning workmanship. Truly.
I will post my “new” Pochade when I have it finished.
I’m so excited!
