Early 19th Century Tunbridge Ware Sarcophagus Sewing Box

From James II Galleries [a James Robinson offshoot on about a 5th floor at 11 E. 57th St. They specialized in 19th century decorative arts and jewelry.]
A sarcophagus shaped sewing box with bun feet. A Vandyke pattern on the sides. Dividers removed by me. One foot replaced. I was visiting the store and found this under a book. I snapped it up. I liked it enough that on my next trip to England I included Tunbridge Wells on my itinerary. And my second one was bought there.
11-1/2 W × 8 D × 3-1/2 H [Click web-size pictures to see full-size.]
