A wonderful set of drawing instruments in a mahogany or rosewood box. The box has a lacquered brass escutcheon engraved with the name- Walter Lazenby and his initials are on all the top tray instruments. The lower tray has a bone parallel ruler and letter opener into which someone has scratched the legend'Lloyd is a half-wit. Also some nibs, pen and loose parts.The top tray appears complete. The box has blue velvet lining. The instruments are in good condition- some have what look like faint ink marks on their bone handles, and there are small areas of the steel that have a little rust, I've not tried any cleaning. The lock is damaged, the upper section has come away from the lid and is locked into the lower section. I think it could be easily fixed. The box has minor signs of wear- a couple of scratch marks near the shield shape lock. The box is 19.5 cm by 14 cm , just over 4.5 cm deep, it weighs 850 gms. Made I would think in the 1870's.
