A whitewood Tunbridge Ware artist's box with an applied print of the east front of the Bank of England and the Tower of the Royal Exchange from St. Bartholomew Lane. The print shows a crowded street scene with jobbers from the Stock Exchange crossing the road to the Bank. The print was originally produced by Thomas Hosmer Shepherd for his series of London views, Metropolitan Improvements; or London in the 19th Century 1827 - 1830.

The interior of the box contains two small lift-out compartments and contains charcoal and artist's implements.

Extensive alterations and re-building was carried out at the Bank of England under Sir John Soane's surveyorship between 1788 and 1833. This was necessary following a big increase in business at the Bank due to the financing of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars.
