Vintage Reeves and Sons Metal Oil Paint Box with Contents
This is a wonderful Reeves and Son's paint collection in a metal box painted black. The box is 12 3/4 inches wide, 8 1/2 inches deep and 1 1/4 inches high. The box has multiple compartments to hold paint tubes of various sizes. There is a latch on the box, and a handle that swings into action.
There are 15 tubes of paint in the box including paints made by Reeves, Winsor & Newton, Winton, and Rowney & Co. The paint tubes can be squeezed indicating the paint is still useable. There are seven brushes including rounds, Filberts, liners, and Filbert. Two of the brushes are labeled Reeves; the others are either not marked, or not recognizable. Although you probably can't use the brushes, they are a wonderful part of this vintage paint set.
