Mahogany Document Box

Category: Archive

Subcategory: Boxes

Six mahogany Document Boxes that are likely to have been part of a larger set.

These boxes are finished to all their sides bar the base. Each is made with open dovetails joints, ring pull handles and have a small lock. The linings are mahogany.

There is no doubt that they were made by a competent cabinet maker and it is probable that originally, they were held altogether in a large box or piece of furniture. They were meant to be pulled out so that their contents could be worked on by either a clerk, or say, a solicitor.

There is a variation in their height of approximately 1 inch. The boxes have already been split from their set, so we are selling them individually. As they are finished all round, they make useful little storage boxes. Early to mid 19th Century.
Largest size is given.

Price is for each box.
