Early 19thC. Mahogany Artist’s Travel Box
A small mahogany box from the first half of the 19th century, with graphic pictorial label carrying the maker's name Reeves & Woodyer, touted as "Superfine Colour Manufacturers, to Her Majesty, the Prince of Wales, and Royal Family, Their Drawing Academies, Military & Naval." Small boxes such as this were used by itinerant artists. The box is structurally sound and amazingly includes the original key. The lower drawer cannot be accessed without the box being unlocked. The box is lacking its original contents as well as some of its interior dividers. See additional photos below.
