Bayley, Blew & Chapman, who described themselves as "dressing case makers and Perfumers to His Majesty and HRH Duke of York," are recorded in the accounts of George IV as having supplied in 1828, a rosewood writing desk edged with brass and a buhl border, patent lock, and flaps covered with green velvet; interior glass mounted with silver. £15 12s. The price for this box is very high indeed, at least five times what could be expected for a normal quality box and reflects the appreciation of the intricate brass work.
