An antique English cutlery/storage box with two hand-painted floral scenes. The dark mahogany box has two sides that lift for storage along with a brass handle. One side has been painted with a gathering of flowers. The other side bears perfectly balanced acanthus scrolls framing an acanthus leaf urn. The scrolls and urns are accented with similar flowers used on the other side. The muted colors are warm and restful. Perfect for cutlery and a host of other items just waiting to be organized.
English, Circa 1910
