home - references - A selection of lacquer boxes - BOX THREE

A quite different style of box, which is in good condition for its age, circa 1880. There are some small areas of loss to the lacquer, as can be seen in the photos. Very nice gilded lake scene to the lid, which displays very well. Inside, there are four small boxes for cards and one longer box. The smaller interior boxes all have a geometric pattern, and the longer box has a gilded scene to the center which matches the lid. It came with four packs of Samuel Hart & Co. 'Squeezer' cards, Patent 35. There are two hundred mother-of-pearl fishes measuring 1 7/8 inches long with the box.
