Another favorite of mine is antique boxes—and I hunt for them on my trips. The oak box above, from a British collector, was made in the late Victorian era—1880’s or 1890’s. It has a light Gothic Revival feeling, modeled after a trunk, with studded strapwork and decorative brass mountings.
See it in the shop, along with other boxes, sometime around Thanksgiving.
Tomorrow I’ll be packing-up everything I’ve purchased, preparing the export/import documentation, and sending-off the goods to New York. Fingers crossed, it will be in New York shortly after I’ve returned.
