Antique Boxes – Inside And Out
For Eating, Drinking And Being Merry Work, Play And the Boudoir
Hardcover ISBN: 1851495029
Boxes are the most beguiling of all collectables with the double delight of an enticing exterior coupled with the anticipation and satisfaction of a fully fitted interior. This is the first and most wide-ranging book that covers both these aspects of all types of boxes. The emphasis is therefore on usage related to the correct and complete contents that should be found inside a specific box. It is clear, concise and visually appealing with the text illustrated with over 1,000 images of nearly 2,000 items. This should therefore be a most valuable reference book for the dealer and collector alike.
