A Fabulous Antique 19th Century Scratch Built Folk Art Secret Book Box, Beautifully Decorated With Gilded Edges, To Make It Look Like Pages, And Engraved With The Name ‘Mrs S Huddlestone’. A Wonderful Piece!
Research suggests that ‘Mrs S Huddlestone’ was in fact Sheila Doreen Huddlestone (1914-1995). Sheila had Scottish roots, which would tie in with the thistles on the box. Sheila died in 1995 aged 81. There is a photograph of her grave included (please see photos).
Condition is good, commensurate with age and use. Structurally sound and functions well.
