Early to mid 19th century boxes are one of my favorite things to collect, especially if they are shaped like books. I have several in my collection but have never seen one made of wavy, mirrored glass before. These boxes were just made for patches or candy, so it always amazes me that they survive. This one is in very good condition, though the hinge needs to be repaired. They are usually detatched as the mirror inside the lid makes it too heavy for the flimsy paper hinge. Refer to photos; sold as is.
