This watercolor box was sold in partnership with Hancock & Son, a porcelain and color pigment maker.  This pigment was sold in partnership with Reeves, to customers who wished to decorate their own porcelain, an art form that had gained prominence in the later 1800’s.  This box is a good example of the products sold at that time to people wishing paint their own china.  This box contains 16 different colored pigments, two bottles of the mixing solutions, a grinding slab, probably a replacement, and some additional colors.  These boxes are now hard to find with most of the pieces still intact.  Measures 8 1/4″ x 6″ x 2 1/2″.
