A stunning Georgian Painted Satinwood Box of the most wonderful warmth & colour, with beautiful shell-type bands all around. On the top of the box is a garland surrounding a portrait and ribboned swags surrounding the bone escutcheon, both painted in a wonderfully vibrant green. Intriguingly, the portrait bears a remarkable resemblance to William Shakespeare, in Elizabethan attire and with pen poised! The box has silver handles & hinges which are hallmarked London 1795.
The interior of this William Shakespeare painted box has a green leather paper with green silk velvet pad in the base, comes with a fully working lock & tasseled key.
