Queen Victoria Stamp Box

A single compartment Tunbridge Ware stamp box with Queen Victoria's head in mosaic. This Queen's head design is usually associated with Thomas Barton but the frieze border suggests that this example is likely to be by Boyce, Brown & Kemp, who used some blocks from other makers. There are 72 rows to the inch in her face.
