A classic 18th century mahogany and satinwood knife box with a sloped, hinged lid inlaid with a pot of flowers. Circa 1790. 8 ¾ inches wide, 11 ¼ inches deep, 14 ¾ inches high (at rear). The original interior was re-fitted to hold correspondence at some time in the past. A striking piece that requires some re-gluing and inlay restoration.
