Title: 1965T5565 Tunbridgeware Glove Box
Description: 1965T5565
Tunbridgeware Glove Box, 1800-1900
This Tunbridgeware glove box was possibly made by Henry Hollamby of Tunbridge Wells around 1850-1860. The lid is decorated with a picture of Eton College which has been made from sticks of different woods, to make it look like a painting. The sticks are first cut and glued on to a paper backing which is then placed into a background of holly wood. Finally, it is set into a rosewood veneer which covers the carcass of the box. The sides of the box are covered with a version of a Berlin Woolwork pattern, normally found on tapestry.

Purchased from Edward H Pinto, 1965.
