Lot Essay

The paper linings of the interior appear to date from the late 18th and early 19th Century. Two in particular refer to the Norfolk area, which may give an early regional provenance to this chest. One is piece by "Ann Hammond, Christmas 1787, at Mendlesham School". Also there is a prescription (with Vignette) issued by GEORGE SOTHERN druggist NORWICH.
