A simply marvellous water colour by English manufacturers R Ackerman. It dates to around 1875, a period when manufactureres made items to last and attended to every little detail from the lovely flush brass handle for opening the drawer to the pin (to the right of the lock) which has to be removed before the drawer can be opened. This means the drawer will never open accidently when you are carrying it around! The key comes with the box and the lock and the hinges are in excellent condition. The mahogany has some signs of wear - see image - but it glows and is absolutely gorgeous. The label, although not perfect, there are some signs of discolouration - is, on the whole in very nice condition.

The interior is in excellent condition and where necessary has been refurbished. The original paints were consumed and so have been replaced with other 19th century block, just as an artist at the time would have done. Broken muxing trays have been replaced (these are however contemporary) and there are pencils, a rubber and brushes. The little brass box contains charcoal.

Everything you need! This is a box that is both beautiful to look at and eminently usable. How nice to take this box to the country and paint your favourite scene, or a portrait.

The box measures 9 by 8 inches and is 3 inches tall.
