About the object

A Tunbridge Ware needlework box veneered in rosewood and inlaid with a cross motif and with geometric patterns both to the lid and frieze. The interior in good original condition with a lift-out tray and fitted with some Tunbridge Ware accessories and also with later mother of pearl spools.

The box has a very rare paper label  to the base of the pincushion. Original label printed W & J Burrows but with a seemingly contemporary ink alteration to H Burrows.

Circa 1825
