Box retains its original solid brass carry handle. The pictures really do not do it justice. The box is attributed to General Lord Aylmer. His full name Matthew Whitworth- Aylmer and was the 5th Baron Aylmer. Born in 1775 and died February 1850.The central solid brass central cartouche is engraved with his name, we are uncertain if this is original or not. There is a little bit of additional information that comes with the box and also shows this very same box with its once original full contents and the copy label attached to the inner lid. The small wood lid and knob inside centre to the box is original to the box. The box has its original velvet interior and is in pretty good order for its great age. There is an retail copy label on the inner lid. Cooper were set up at 19 Partition Street, New York, N. We are not sure whether the old original label ever came with the box and a copy made. We are pretty sure that this is the case. But it is possible the box was made in New York, we are just not sure. Either way its a fabulous old box. It does come with scratches all part of its very long age.
There is no covering to the underside of the box and never was. The underside is in good order for age. We can put a dark green lining beneath to save scratches if you so desire.
