A fine quality black lacquer mauchline ware lozenge shaped lidded box, measuring 5-1/8 by 3-7/8 inches and 2-3/8 inches high. The lid is decorated with an oval shaped bouquet of flowers, bordered by a wavy gold line. The box is lined with red moire paper that is accented with braid. Like most of these 19thc boxes part of the soft metal clasp has broken off but the box can be opened, as seen. Made in Scotland circa 1880 and influenced by Japanese lacquer ware that was available in Europe at that time, black lacquer mauchline is made of wood with a lacquer finish.

A barrel shaped wooden bank with an applied printed paper motto: "THRIFT". The wording reads: "To catch dame Fortune's golden smile, Assiduous wait upon her, And gather gear by every wile, that's justified by honour." The bank was made in Scotland circa 1880 and measures about 3-1/4 inches tall and 2-3/4 inches in diameter. It was used, with noticeable wear around the upper rim and at the money slot. The blue morocco paper on the bottom also shows wear. It is a charming survivor of an earlier time.
