A rare artist's box fitted out for stenciling and containing purpose made brushes, powder and hard pigments, ivory palette and numerous finely cut brass stencils with written instructions as to their use. One stencil suggests that this set was made for a Miss Bland. Most of the stencils are annotated with their price, ranging between 1 and 5 shillings; one example is priced at 9 shillings! In 1780 a labouring man would earn between 1 & 2 shillings for a days work.
