19c Mauchline Ware Souvenir Thread Box
A wonderful cylinder shaped 19th Century Mauchline Ware keeping box. This box was decorated with the transfer of `RAMSEY'. Ramsey is a port and holiday town on the Isle of Man, England.
This souvenir box may have been designed to use as a small string box. This box is 2 1/4" high and is 2 7/8" across. Condition is near to excellent as the craftsman ship and the sycamore wood in the construction were of the highest quality. There are no cracks or chips to this keep sake and the only wear that can be found is to the underside original paper added to keep moisture away from the wood.
This box would have been made in Scotland for the English trade.
