This wonderful box dates the very early 19th century and was likely the product of a young lady while attending a girls school. The box is made of pasteboard, covered with a green paper and hand painted with floral sprays and gilded swags. Included in the decoration are five hand colored engraved vignettes taken from popular engravings of the period. The inside of the box is lined with a hand dipped swirled paint paper. The whole finished with a thin coat of laquer. The box is rare, the condition excellent and it displays beautifully.
