cardboard imageBoxes are highly variable receptacles. When no shape is described, a typical cuboid box may be expected. Nevertheless, a box may have a horizontal cross-section that is square, elongated, round or oval; sloped or domed top surfaces, or non-vertical sides. A box normally may be opened by raising, sliding or removing the lid, which may be hinged and/or fastened by a catch, hasp, or lock.  Whatever its shape or purpose or the material of which it is fashioned, it is the direct descendant of the chest, one of the most ancient articles of domestic furniture. Its uses are innumerable, and the name, preceded by a qualifying adjective, has been given to many objects of artistic or antiquarian interest.

Shoe box

A shoebox is, exactly as its name implies, a cardboard box which holds a pair of shoes. It is commonly acquired when one purchases a pair of shoes. Shoeboxes have long been cherished for their versatility and are commonly used for many tasks around the house, such as holding trading cards, photos, and just about anything else.
