    IMPORTANT, POSSIBLY UNIQUE ABRAHAM LINCOLN "NOTIONS" BOX. Pictured with its original contents, as found, this wonderful box graced the top of a Victorian dressing table.  It is 4" in diameter, and 1" deep.  The lid features a great beardless Lincoln litho under glass, and the sides of the box are decorated with rings of embossed paper and brass.  Condition is beautiful, and this is the only example believed known in the organized hobby. It was purchased by its consignor from the Fall, 1997, American Social History auction.  It carried a minimum bid of $1750 in that sale, but aggressive bidding resulted in a price well over $5000. This is a very special opportunity both for early 3-D and Lincoln collectors.  We know of no other round Lincoln box of this general size which can be obtained by those who collect snuff boxes, etc., in series.  Additional shipping cost may apply.
