A particularly noteworthy example of the small dome-top box dressed in leather.

Examples in natural leather with period newspaper linings were once found regularly, but we’ve never seen one in such formal dress.

The dark green and brilliant red of the exterior and the patterned fabric lining of the interior set this example apart from all others.

English, late 18th century

Length: 8-1/4”; depth: 4-1/2”; height: 3-1/4”
