Here's a Mauchline ware box with transfer of the "Croft Spa Hotel" in Croft-on-Tees near Darlington, England. Mauchline ware was made in the Scottish town by the same name. The distinctive blonde colored wood was made into numerous forms and had transfers on them to be sold as souvenirs in the U.K. and in the U.S. of various tourist areas. This box was made in Victorian times - it is in the shape of a trunk with rope handles. The Croft Spa Hotel is still going - now called the Croft Hotel it remains very much like the picture on this box so many years later. There were many different types of wares made in England, Tartan ware, fernware, Tunbridge ware, and they each used different craft techniques. Tartan ware is often lumped together with Mauchline ware but they were very different. However, sometimes you find a Mauchline piece using strips of tartan ware. Both were made in Scotland.
This little box is in good condition with only a tiny scratch or two. It measures 3 1/4" long by 2 1/4" across and 2 1/4" high. I love the little handles on it. A good addition to a Mauchline Ware or box collection.
