Beautiful Victorian Tunbridge Ware glove box, made c.1850. The box itself is kingwood -- rare in comparison with the customary rosewood – with a striking grain. The top is slightly domed, and features a lovely mosaic design with a floral band around the edge. The front, back and sides of the box have a wide band in a rare design that I have not seen on other Tunbridge Ware pieces. Inside, the glove box retains its original lining both to the underside of the lid and to the interior of the box. The lock works and has its key. The box measures 9.7" in length by 3.5" in width, and is 3.0" high at the highest.
The condition of the box is excellent.
