Black Lacquer Mauchline Ware Motto Box
A black lacquer mauchline ware two-part trinket box made in Scotland circa 1870. The top is decorated with a wreath of flowers including bluebells, yellow poppies, daisies and lily of the valley. An open book reveals the motto: "Remembrance. May each revolving year, dear friend, With joy begin, with gladness end, And Heaven its choicest blessings send, To cheer thee on life's journey." Altogether charming, the entire piece measures 3 inches by 2 inches and 1-1/2 inches high. It is in excellent condition with a very minor loss of lacquer on the upper right corner and typically worn morocco paper on the bottom.
