19th C. Wallpaper Trinket Box w/ Velvet Pincushion Theorem

This box is very definitely a "Wow"! A 19th Century (c. 1840 or so) Wallpaper Trinket Box decorated with its original pincushion theorem (flower decoration). This all-cardboard box would most likely have been use for sewing notions. It measures 4 ¾" x 3 ¼" x 2 ½" (height to top of pincushion). It retains its original ribbon hinges and bright pink interior paper. Excellent condition: solid with no splits, tears, etc. Wallpaper (inside and out) is complete with only slight lifting at the top-edge in the front. Pincushion bordered by original cotton yarn. This one looks like it spent the last 150+ years buried in a trunk and was hardly used when it was new.
