Description & Technical information

Travelling salesmen in Victorian England often carried models of their wares instead of large and heavy full-size objects. Some of these models, ranging from machinery to household items and sanitary ware, are extremely decorative and they are usually well made.
This outstanding example excels in its fine craftsmanship and design. It is fully functional, with levers for opening and closing, and the engraved decoration is superb. The mahogany protective case adds to its rarity.
