The surface of the box is plain and unembellished.


The upper portion is fitted with the original, hinged hallmarked cover.

The underside of this exceptional box retains the original cedar wood and leatherette lining.


This exceptional housekeeper's box is the finest of its type you could hope to acquire.


* It can be determined by the titles of these books, in addition to the lockable cover, that this piece was crafted to be both portable and a desk feature. This unusual example of antique English silverware reflects the style of a travelling factors journal box.
