19th Century, Mauchline Ware, Trunk Shaped, Trinket Box with Transfer of The Sands, Ramsgate
The town of Mauchline was the home of a thriving industry devoted to the manufacture of boxes and other wooden souvenir items. These souvenirs are now referred to as "Mauchline Ware". Many small towns in that area of Scotland manufactured Mauchline Ware. The box makers generally used wood from the Sycamore tree, also known as Scots Plane. A large variety of utilitarian pieces were produced. The souvenirs produced involved many of the Victorian pastimes of sewing, writing, games, smoking, etc. The souvenirs were decorated with transfers of scenic spots from around the globe.
This early, wooden trinket box is a wonderful example of Mauchline Ware. This trunk shaped box depicts a scene from The Sands, Ramsgate. The scene on the lid depicts a Victorian beach town with people romping in the water with boats and buildings in the background. The buildings are extremely well detailed. Printed in bold lettering below the scene, "The Sands, Ramsgate". The lift off lid opens easily and closes securely. Dainty, rope twist handles accent each end of the box. The transfer is good condition with some dings to the surface. The original finish is in good to fair condition. These dings are normal for the age of this wonderful box. The slight flaws to the surface do not detract from the beauty of this charming trinket box. Mentioned for Accuracy and Priced Accordingly. This box is still a fantastic treasure even with the minor dings. This is a no harm flaw. I do not repair my items. I have priced this piece at an extremely low cost to make up for the minor dings. I am selling this trinket box in "as is" condition. I am extremely particular and I ALWAYS try to mention EVERY, TINY detail. I prefer to be overly cautious then to have an unhappy customer. Otherwise, this Mauchline Ware trinket box is in good condition. There are no DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLEABITES, NICKS, FLAKES, or CRACKS. This lovely trinket box measures approximately 3 ¼ inches in length by 2 inches in width by 2 ¼ inches in height. This delightful trinket box would be a great gift for you or for the Mauchline Ware collector. The holidays are just around the corner. This wonderful trunk shaped box is a great gift idea for that special loved one for the holidays. This timeless treasure would be a perfect stocking stuffer. ***PLEASE NOTE: PayPal Payments due within 48 hours of purchase. *** ALL shipping costs are included!
