Two nice tin plated iron boxes dating to the mid 19th century.

The black enameled match or cigarette box measures 5 1/2" by 3" by 2 1/2" tall and features a colorful hand painted rendition of a sailing ship on the hinged lid. Rows of red outline the lid and bottom edge of the base. The interior has been painted in a flat red paint and we believe that this is a later modification. In nice structural condition with no dents or metal tears. The paint is a little rough..please use the pictures as a more detailed description.

The small oval trinket box measures 2 3/4" by 1 5/8" by about 1 1/4" to the top of the slightly domed lid. Japanned finish is dark reddish brown with a naive hand painted posy on the lid. In nice condition with a tight snap fitted lid. The hinge appears to have been re-soldered at some point but it is not a new repair.

Please ask for more photos of these two nice boxes from around 1865.
