Archibald Morrison Fyfe was a marble merchant from the company Galbraith and Winton of Glasgow, renowned dealers, cutters and engravers of marble. With his birth in 1817, in Paisley, Renfrewshire, this may well have been a 40th birthday gift from the family. The box possibly originally belonged to Henry Fyfe, the patriarch of the firm making high quality dress cloth in Glasgow in the mid 19th century.
