Circa 1830 English blonde tortoiseshell pin box, the inside is lined with royal blue and gold starred paper, the outside bottom is lined with a very thin layer of red leather with bun feet. There is a silver metal cartouche on top but not inscribed, a metal hinge and silver metal button closure in perfect working order, no maker’s mark found. An elegant way to save your straight pins, these boxes look wonderful grouped with other tortoiseshell.
Condition: One tiny crack on the top right corner.
