19th Century Tunbridgeware Box

19th Century Tunbridgeware Box

ARTIST UNKNOWN/CA.1850

Beauty and function meld with seamless harmony in this grand yet petite Tunbridge Box. Living a dual existence of utilitarian container and decorative fine art, this item embodies the ideas birthed in the 19th century: everyday items can be art. This unique elevation in status allows the Tunbridge Box to fit into anyone's daily life and has been since the mid-1800s. Even if not in practical use, this item visually exudes true craftsmanship with its micromosaic features. This technique involves delicately forging tiny fragments of colored glass or stone to form intricate imagery and patterns.
