Old Politicals Auction #11
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 6/24/2011
There are several known designs in this series with this one and the Zachary Taylor being the most sought after. About 2 5/8" x 1 3/4" with attached glass lid and glass bottom made in the form of a book. Mirror on the reverse of the top lid. It has been suggested when these boxes come to auction that they were used to hold small cosmetic patches and as such were boxes made for ladies. Some chipping of the textile borders front and back otherwise this box is in really nice shape. This JQ Adams has auction records close to $4,000. We think the following estimate is reasonable. Estimate: $2,500-3,000
