Pease read: Due to the new Sales Tax requirements, I will be not be selling anything to customers in Kansas, and Rhode Island, until your State comes up with a reasonable small seller exemption from State sales tax collection and/or their onerous notice requirements. This policy is subject to change since States are in the process of enacting new laws and changing current laws. Let me know if you are from one of the above States and I will check on updates from your State to see if they have enacted new legislation.

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 it could be early 1830's, by Jennings & Bettridge. Not sure if this was for jewelry or bridge accessories. The perfect gift! dm-auc11-07
