Box Ware

By the advent of the 19th century the name of 'Mauchline', a town in Ayrshire, had become synomymous with the manufacture of wooden snuff-boxes. Soon the manufacturers in the town were producing a full range of small decorative boxes made from sycamore. Today these boxes are still sought out by collectors world wide. This section of the site shows a variety of the different types including fern and tartanware.
