A brass edged, mahogany campaign Cavalry Box with brass facia plate and unused shaped engraving plate to the top.

Although similar to many cavalry dressing boxes with a removable mirror fitted to the top with dividers for tools behind and hinged to the short side, this example differs a little to most. Instead of a swing out tray that then allows access to the tools held below, this box has a lift up tray than can then be used separately to the box. Below the tray there are dividers topped with a rounded ebony moulding. Most are empty but one contains a removable box with slide lid and another has a lift out tin for soap etc. The top tray is cut to hold specific tools including 2 razors with bone handles, one of which is marked J. Binghams whilst the other is marked Superior Cast Steel, a pair of boot pulls, an ox bow hook, tweezers and 2 pairs of scissors one of which at least is a replacement.

This is a good looking Cavalry Box with a fine cut of mahogany used for the top. Early 19th Century.
