Antique Mauchline ware sycamore wood transfer printed box. The scene is of "Edinburgh Castle view from Princess Street". Unsure of what the box originally held anything or it was just a souvenir box. The lid lifts off and there are two small compartments possibly for spools of ribbon or thread or just for jewelry or trinkets. There are a couple of black marks on the wood like the one on the front of the lid in the photo. I examined them with a loupe and it is black ink and it appears to be under the varnish otherwise excellent antique condition. The Mauchline ware box measures 3.5 inches or 9 cm x 2.5 inches or 7 cm x 1.5 inches or 4 cm tall.
