These are of the collectable "Tartanware" design (McDuff tartan) and are complete with brass weights. 7.25ins wide; 5ins deep; 4.5ins high. (18.5 x 12.5 x 11.5cms) *Mauchline is a small town in South-West Scotland, which became famous in the mid-19th century for the production of boxware and other tourist items using local wood, usually sycamore. The faithful reproduction of genuine tartans as decoration is especially popular with some collectors who specialise exclusively in tartanware. Production, which started in 1820, ceased in 1933 following a disastrous fire. c.1880
