This beautiful replica is of an original 11th century Anglo Saxon instrument box found at London, England. This may have been used to hold quills. It is mostly decorated by animal themes with what may be an opened mouth lion head at the end. There are four different panels on the two sides. The first panel may show a mounted warrior with a spear fighting dragons. Another panel appears to be two lions attacking a man. The third panel looks like two archers shooting at birds. The final panel appears to be two men digging at a plant or tree with a bird off to the side. This is really a fascinating piece to look at. The lid on our replica stays in place with magnets which are not visible.
Made in the UK from resin. Approximately 11" long and 1.75" tall.
