A gentleman formerly from Alexandria, now living in the Middle Peninsula, recently purchased this handmade toolbox. The wood is pine, and the interior tray is intact. The interior shows signs of good wear over a long period of time. The hardware is original.

A lady originally from Fairfax inherited six plates identical to this one from her father’s side of the family. They are in the traditional blue on white motif, and are hallmarked “Villeroy and Boch.” They are eight inches in diameter and in excellent condition with no chips or cracks, but evidence of use over the years.
