This quite oustanding box is broad rectagular in form, with cut corners. The cover is engraved with a bright cut border and prick dot ground. The cover also displays three raised panels with cut corners, the central one engraved with a circular cartouche and initials, with tied ribbons above. The two outer panels are decorated with very unusual floral and foliate sprigs. The sides are engraved with garlands, interspersed with flower heads and the base with a sunburst design and unusual central basket of fruit. The box has a beautifully concealed hinge and velvet lined interior. The box is in excellent condition and is fully marked on the inside. Phipps & Robinson made arguably the finest Toothpick Boxes at this date and this is an exceptional example.

Length: 3.45 inches, 8.63cm.
Width: 1.25 inches, 3.13cm.
