Antique 1800-1840 British Box at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - From the curators' comments: "This small box is decorated with veneered bands of Tunbridgeware. This consists of patterns made up of tiny cubes of wood. The cubes were made from bundles of blocks that were finely cut across the grain. A pincushion covers the top, so the box was probably used to store sewing accessories. It was made in Tunbridge Wells in Kent."
