Date of manufacture: Victorian
Current Status: For sale
Seller: Hobson May Collection

Description

A very charming 19th Century papier mache envelope or card box, beautifully decorated with gilt scrolls, flowers and exotic birds. The gently curved lid opens to reveal interior compartments with the original purple lining. The lock does not work and the key is included for decorative purposes. The condition of this box is reasonably good, as can be seen from the photos. There is some wear inside the lid, this is not detrimental. The exterior painting is good and is as can be expected of an item over 170 years old. A lovely Victorian box to use or display.
