    Zachary Taylor: A Stunning Lacquered Wood Portrait Box with Hinged Lid. The profile portrait is a familiar one, but this is one of the nicest versions we have seen, with color tinting and elaborate gilt accents. Obviously a much rarer form than the familiar round papier-mâché boxes. Condition is beautiful, as the photo shows. For accuracy, we note a small chip on Taylor's cheek and a couple of trivial light scrapes in the lower right field, both of which could be easily restored if one felt the need. However, overall this box is in as fine condition as any from this era that we have encountered. 2.125" x 3.5" x 1".
