Three 'penny in the slot' tobacco dispensers, commonly known as honour or honesty boxes on account of the honesty needed to fill just your pipe bowl with tobacco and not your pockets in exchange for the penny required to open the box! Made from heavy sheet and cast brass, each stamped "Riches Patent" beneath a Royal Coat of Arms. English circa 1840. The first and second example are a very similar; a matched pair.
9 5/8th in x 4 5/8th in x 7 in high.
