Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer....
AGE: C.1880 or so
ITEM: From France comes this lovely bit of Mauchlinware aka Treen aka a wooden box with a transferware graphic (in this case, a Procession at Lourdes) on top. With a heavy coat of maple colored lacquer/varnish, open the box to reveal an interior that looks as good as the day it was first made! Box opens easily and has a secure closure. The hinges are lightly engraved showing pride in manufacture.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot.
SIZE: 3" x 2-1/2" approx. Depth is about 1" top lid to bottom.
FINAL COMMENTS: The scene is entitled LOURDES PROCESSION and depicts a long line of people walking into the Cathedral. Overall, a fabulous souvenir from Notre Dame de Lourdes - site of the visitation of the Holy Virgin Mary to Saint Bernadette Soubirous.
