Vintage 'Seven Dwarfs' Wood Pencil Box

This multi-chamber wooden pencil box features a color illustration of the Seven Dwarfs with text, "Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's home from work we go..." Measures 9.25" x 2.5" and 1.5" deep. Sliding the lid to the right opens the first pencil storage space. This upper portion of the box can then swing out to reveal a hidden compartment below. A painted example and several unpainted versions have been found online. Some include a "Japan" imprint on the bottom. Possibly dates from 1950s.

Painted red exterior.
