A large Early 19th Century Artist's Mahogany fitted Paint Box with drawer, containing a comprehensive range of the artist's original jars bottles & water pots, brushes, drawing instruments, and other acoutrements. Many paper packets of powders and cards are contained below the lift out tray, and inside the drawer. The original polished mahogany pallette has been painted with depictions of paint brushes, and this is fixed inside the lid with a large turn catch. There is another large wooden pallette in the drawer. A black leather box by C. Roberson, 99 Long Acre & 154 Piccadilly containing a pair of metal scribes with black handles is also included. The box is so crammed full that I have not been able to show all the contents in my pictures.
The box can also serve as an easel or document rest when the lid is lifted and held in one of three positions by a hinged brass stay, and the wooden shelf put in place.
