Scope and content

Item is a hand-carved hardwood box featuring the crest of North Bay Teachers' College in relief on the lid. The lid and corners of the box also feature fine carvings of maple leaves in relief. The box is hinged, has a smooth matte finish, and its interior is divided into two compartments. The box appears to be held together with glue, except for the brass hinges which are affixed with finishing nails.

The crest on the lid features the provincial shield of Ontario surmounted by a burning oil lamp with the college's motto "Docendo Discimus" ("By teaching, we learn") underneath. The shield is enclosed by a scroll reading "North Bay Teachers College."
