Geometric Carved Walnut Boarded Writing Box

The chip carving extends over the top and to all four sides. The lid opens on a very fine pair of brass strap work hinges to an interior with divisions for writing implements, inkwell and sander. These boxes are frequently dated to the mid 17th century; however this one is inscribed to the base, Charles Bawden July 27 1745, Bawden being a Celtic name that is often associated with Cornwall. One is kept wondering about the relevance of the day and the date and if it is contemporary or added at a later date. For similar, see Victor Chinnery - Oak Furniture The British Tradition, pages 179-181.
