Due to the new Sales Tax requirements, I will be not be selling anything to customers in Mass., Nebraska, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Virginia until your State comes up with a reasonable small seller exemption from State sales tax collection.
Reasonable offers are considered on non-sale items. The main categories are on left and the subcategories are within the categories.
Outstanding Victorian mop paper mache box. c:1880 according to the auction catalog. This box came from the estate of a private N.Y. collector/sold at a high end auction in MI. Magnificent box that is so much nicer than the pictures show it, (the camera picks up more details than the naked eye). It is mother of pearl & abilone inlay on paper mache. 7.5 x 7.75 wide x 2.25 tall. Some alligatoring of the paper as expected. Likely English, my research indicates early 1830's, by Jennings & Bettridge. Not sure if this was for jewelry or bridge accessories. The perfect gift! dm-auc11-07
