A Tunbridge Ware trinket box with a floral mosaic within geometric borders to the lid. A paper label to the base From Medhursts Manufactory 'A Trifle from Malvern'.

Circa 1890

Medhurst's Manufactory was run by James Medhurst between 1839 and 1860 and subsequently by his sons. They were amongst a small group of makers to produce Tunbridge Ware outside of Kent or East Sussex and operated from Weymouth and Worthing. The date of this box suggests that George Medhurst was the maker, who was based in Worthing between 1843 and 1892.

The renowned spring water attracted many visitors to Malvern, giving rise for a demand for souvenirs. James Medhurst is known to have died in Malvern in 1877, possibly whilst visiting for health reasons.
