This is a 19th Century Tartan Ware Prince Charlie Plaid Spool Thread Holder Box George Clark Mauchline. The box is wood and the tartan plaid is Prince Charlie with some loss to the paper tartan on the lid. The label states “CLARK’S/ONT/SPOOL COTTON/George A. Clark/Sole Agent.” All the thread savers are present on the side with numbers 30, 36, 40, 50, 60, and 70. The interior holds 6 spools of thread and a thimble (maybe brass?) that appears to be original to the box. The box measures 4 inches in diameter and about 2-1/2 inches tall. The lid interior graphics are bright and clear.
