A vintage Artists Box with what are believed to be the original Rowney paints and palette (although not all paints are present – see photographs). The box appears to be well made with a piano style hinge to the back, and two firm catches to the front, and handle. We were unable to find a makers mark on the box itself.
The original Rowney linseed oil bottle was with the box, but we have removed this from the sale as the bottle is it leaking a little. We are not certain (not being artists ourselves) what the empty compartments shown in the photographs might have held. There are a few paint marks on the box handle which we have been unable to remove. There is some surface scratching on the underside of the box. The box is otherwise structurally sound.
The box measures approximately 14in by about 10in, and about 2.5in deep when the lid is closed. The box and paints and palette together weigh just under 2.75kg. Exact age unknown but believed to have some age, possibly the middle of last century.
