A Victorian Solicitors Deed Box

A very good Victorian quality solicitors deed box with a Hobbs lock and blue interior. The hand painted inscription reads ‘Miss L . C Bickersteth’s Trustees’

The Bickersteth Family were at the time (from the mid 1800’s onwards) prominent in the Church and the Law. With numerous members of the family holding high office in both professions. Clearly a family of significant means, there is a record of a Miss Bickersteth subscribing to the erection of a first World War memorial in nearby Kirkby Lonsdale, which is where this deed box has come from. A useful and attractive piece of social history.

Repton & Co brings together a collection of both antique and newly made items that will enhance and define the spaces we live, work and play in.

With no particularly strict genre or style, we buy and sell what we like and what we would like to live with.

The simple things appeal the most; good colour, strong form, weathering, patina and age. There is a deep attraction to the elegance and beauty that comes from decay.  Whatever it is called, it is that indefinable thing or feeling that something is just right.
