Antique Boxes-Inside And Out: For Eating, Drinking And Being Merry

Boxes are beguiling because they can have the double delight of an enticing exterior and the anticipation and satisfaction of a fully fitted interior. This comprehensive guide to the decoration, style, use and contents of all types of boxes from diverse cultures is the first book to cover both these aspects. The coverage of decoration and styles of boxes is remarkably complete and includes the traditional, the exotic and the eccentric. Folk art to Faberge, tea caddies to tinder boxes, medicine chests to music boxes, ditty to document, voting to vampire, painting, sewing and writing boxes are just some of the topics that are included. The result is a pictorial treat, the text lavishly illustrated with images of nearly 2,000 boxes. It is a most valuable reference book for the dealer and the collector alike.

This is both a comprehensive publication and lovely tabletop book that is a feast for the mind, the senses, and the soul.An exhaustive amount of research has gone in to this study of boxes from so many periods and regions of the world.I think it is a steal for the price, and is my suggestion that anyone interested in this subject purchase the book now. It is one of those editions that will become an out-of-print costly collector's item in the not too distant future.Thank you Ms. Cummins...just a joy.Charles
