A nice early 18th Century oak box of very good colour from the Through of Bowland. Dated 1705 and initialled I H, with the original butterfly hinges, one bottom board replaced many years ago. The carving is typical of the of the region with its punch work and incised scrolls. A most unusual feature to the nicely crafted one piece hinged lid is the jimped decoration not only to the top sides of the edge but the underneath also.
